I'm seeing different unexpected problems with multiple properties in a
BUILD request:


cd c:/boost/status/
myjam -sTOOLS=msvc -sBUILD="debug <optimization>space
<runtime-link>static" type_traits
<libs!regex!build>libboost_regex.lib: required property
<optimization>off incompatible with <optimization>space


How critical is this bug for you? I ask because we're really trying to
stop working on Boost.Python v1, and only want to fix critical bugs so
we can focus energy on writing Boost.Python v2...

On the other hand, if this is a showstopper, please tell us and we'll
address it.
