Nice! From looking a few things I found on the web, looks like
modules.peek can be used for various things - in this case is [
modules.peek : BOOST_ROOT ] equivalent to [ os.environ BOOST_ROOT ] or
is there a difference?

In general, where can one can find documentation on all the importable
modules (os, path, modules...)? I am only able to find discussion
threads that hint at how they can be used.

Didn't know that either...
