  Is python initialized more than once, somehow?
Otherwise, I'd like see the values of
$($(best)) and $($(self.all-flags)).

  Perhaps now would be a good time to start
promoting my debugger for Jam. After building
b2 from the debug branch:
$ b2 -dconsole
(b2db) break property.jam:743
Breakpoint 1 set at property.jam:743
(b2db) run --dump-tests msvc-14.0 -n
(b2db) print $($(best))
(b2db) print $($(self.all-flags))
