Subject: [boost] Jamfile to control MSVC compiler options /Za and /Ze

I have been taking my own medicine and trying to get Boost.math free of warnings
with the /Za No MS extensions option.
Mostly this is fine.
<toolset>msvc:<cxxflags>/Za # disable MS Extensions in Boost.Test.
But a few tests *require* the extensions.
I have tried to enable them for just one module thus:
# pow test requires type_of that MS extensions.
run pow_test.cpp ../../test/build//boost_test_exec_monitor
: # command line
: # input files
: # requirements
<toolset>msvc:<cxxflags>/Ze # Requires type_of which requires MS
but the compiler complains about deprecation (and most importantly, that later
options do not override, so you can't specify /Za and them /Ze.
cl : Command line warning D9035 : option 'Ze' has been deprecated and will be
removed in a future release
cl : Command line error D8016 : '/Za' and '/Ze' command-line options are
Can any jam experts suggest a way round this (short of leaving the default
enable extensions, and making an exception for all the vast majority of modules
that are OK with /Za - too tedious to be attractive? Splitting into two classes
of tests is also ugly.)
