I've comitted the most detailed description of milestone 1 under new/m1.txt.
Please take a look. In particular, it describes a set of tasks I think

I've also comitted some tests for 'make'. It is test/m1-{01,02,03}.py and
also in directories test/m1-{01,02,03}. They certainly do not work now, and
require some changes to the test framework, which I'll do in few minutes.
The tests will surely need tweaking later -- I don't believe that tests can
be written in adance and never change -- but they define the general feature

There's also one interface question not addressed yet. I'd like to implement
almost full project support for the first milestone. We then need an ability
to load other project's project-root.jam, so that that file could forward
declare project id that will be used later. What syntax? Something like:

use-project /path/to/my/project ;
