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 property.as-path rule better and faster than I. Would you mind to
implementing that in the first place, leaving command line to me?
