I've lingered on this thread for some time and can't hold it in any
longer. I can't agree more with Matthew. I was so impressed with the
Boost Build concepts that I have converted both our win32 and linux
builds for all of our products to use Boost Build.

In fact, we aren't even using any of the Boost libraries in our
production code yet. We were introduced to Boost Build when evaluating
Boost and it resolved several build issues more cleanly than our
in-house solution.

It appears that we are an oddity in the community, but Boost Build and
bjam was not a show stopper.
