Gah, I overlooked that one, too. The rationale makes sense.

I'm with out at this. Maybe some more SHOUTING in the subject would have been
better. And maybe some preprocessor #define to select old/new commandline
parser during compilation. This would have allowed the testers to use the old
behaviour while figuring out how to adapt testing.jam. The same goes for
c++11/03 switches, of course. But I think that going forward is the best way
out of this...
