Well, it's always pretty straight forward for someone. :) But if everyone
has to use bjam anyway to build the libraries I think there will be less
willingness to install and learn another tool only to apply patches?

As I'm not asking for a component-based approach either I have to forward
the question though: Does Vladimir's proposal make sense to those who are
looking forward to a Boost.UUID fix and don't want to wait for the next
official release?
