very good - I didn't think of that. I guess it pretty well proves taht
I was wrong in thinking that python could be decoupled from other boost
source code.

So it seems that this "independence" really just means making the bjam
files not dependent on the boost root ones. I'm not sure that I see the
point to or the value in this. But it still seems to me that it doesn't
change anything.
