When loading a Jamfile, it is needed to load project-root.jam first. Unless
I'm mistaken, the current opinion is that we should not require Jamfile to
declare its location, but to use crawl-up to find everything. However,
there's a problem -- we can't locate a file without including it. It will
result in project-root.jam to be included once for each Jamfile, and I don't
like that idea. In order to locate project-root.jam without including it,
Glob building can be used, once we have it.
Is my understanding correct? If so, probably I can try to grab Glob from 2.4.
