It seems to me that this only works well if a typical bjam invocation is
considered an all or nothing proposition. This is not true for running
tests, when there are expected failures, and it may well not be true for
building Boost on "non-release" platforms, where some libraries may fail to
build. It obviously is true for projects where the final target depends on
everything else, but Boost is not such a project.
