I would hope that we don't use variables at all in the new system :-) It would
make more sense to make the target types objects. But that supposses that we
use the object system on V2.

Slowly... I'll create a branch for it soon, end of this week, maybe. So yes
help will be welcome at that point ;-)

Nah, that's the easy part :-) The hard question is what happens when we
include a Jamfile from an "external" project. Do we search for the
project-root.jam again? And if so we have to do the search relative to the
Jamfile we are including. And I'm sure there are other problems I can't think
of right now that "external" inclusion brings up.
