I don't feel comfortable writing:

   bjam --without-python --without-regex-icu ...

every time I want to build something! However, the inverse would be
equally annoying for people who do want these facilities.

BBv2 has a user-config.jam file that allows you to configure the various
toolsets. If I don't have a "using python ;" decleration in there, it is
likely that I don't have Python or don't want to use it. This statement
is therefore my --with[out]-python flag.

Similarly, with ICU I could have "using icu ;".

The documentation should also tell me what optional components
(Python, ICU, ZLib) are used by different libraries and how to
configure these.
