That is great news, one of the most missing features.
a) Does it rename macros as well? I mean if I have a library
with defined BOOST_ASIO_ENABLE_FOO_BAR would it be renamed
to NEWNAME_ASIO_ENABLE_FOO_BAR ?
b) Doest it updates BJam files as well.
c) How do you deal with various test files?
d) Have you tryed to run some regrssion tests?
I had written once such tool on my own, see
However I hadn't updated the BJam files. I still
managed to build most of parts of boost and run some regession
I would defenatly test it ASAP.

When you use alias or in any case?
Actually my tool had allowed this. Why you can't do this?
P.S.: This is very important step!
