Note that with 1.34.1 out, I plan to revive the experimental BBV2/Python
branch that will allow to write Jamfiles in Python. With a widely
known programming language, we can more freely ask users to write
procedural code whenever builtin mechanisms are not sufficient, so
that will simplify usage overall.
