Since the new build system will support building multiple projects
simultaneously, there comes a question of interaction between them.
For example, two different project-root.jam files can declare different rules
with the same name, to be used by Jamfiles in corresponding projects. What is
even worse, they can call rules in some modules, for example to declare new
target types or generators or to configure something. An ideal solution would
be if all modules that can be configured from project-root.jam or Jamfiles
separate information that came from different projects. Is it workable?
Maybe, facilities in classes.jam can be used to create project-local data in
modules that need it?
