That's only useful if you still want to work with the whole boost source
tree as a whole, so I see it as a transitional measure.
As I said, I really would like to get to a point where I can only check
out boost.python, then configure its build by pointing at prerequisite
libraries that I have either previously built myself, or got from my
Linux (or other OS) distro. So there still is a fair bit of work that
needs to go into boost.build.
