Boost.Jam has everythin FTJam has plus better Win9x support than FTJam and a
whole load of other enhancements. I've spoken to Matt about a merge -- we're
really interested in most of his features and plan to steal a few anyway --
but at that time he really didn't have any time to devote to it. However, if
you'd like to contribute to Boost.Jam by merging and testing Matt's
features, we'd be very glad to have your help.
