In what scenario? Standalone, or as part of the Boost release?
If standalone, it's up to you to support whatever you like.
If as part of the release, this would mean that everyone who wants to build
a Boost release would now need to have your preferred build system
installed. Currently, we don't require anything else, as Boost.Build is part
of the release. So this would be a significant regression in usability.
