David, have you made any progress on this? If it is not close to finishing,
then probably we can change tasks a little. I think I understand how it
should be implemented. On the other hand, you had some ideas about generating
paths from proprty sets and have implemented 'feature.jam', so could write
impoved rule better and faster than I. Would you mind to
implementing that in the first place, leaving command line to me?
