#3814: bjam special cases --pythonXXX options?
 Reporter: smr@… | Owner: grafik
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: Boost 1.42.0 | Component: bjam
  Version: Boost 1.41.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: |
 The bjam shipped with Boost 1.41 generally ignores unrecognized options;
 e.g. "./bootstrap.sh; ./bjam --blabla" will build everything just fine.
 However, if I pass "--pythonbla", I get a very mysterious failure:
 steve_at_riemann{boost}./bjam --pythonbla
 Boost.Build V2 Python port (experimental)
 in boost-build
 rule PYTHON_IMPORT_RULE unknown in module
 build.jam:17: in module scope

 Why is this? This was not the behaviour in 1.40.

 This breaks the "--pythonid" patch we use in Debian; c.f.
