Done, finally ;-)

Done. Although I don't know how well of a test I put in is. I just put a
use-project in the project-root.jam of project-test3/lib3.

Do you want me to bounce you the sourceforge task and you work on that one?
Or do you want me to work on it? Either way one issue is... When should the
rules be imported? The three choices I see are: 1) in new/project-root.jam
before the project gets loaded; 2) in new/project.jam before loading the
project, but after creating the project module; or 3) after the project is

#3 Looks obviously like the wrong choice. As that would remove the benefit
of the user declaring the rules :-)

Choosing between #1 and #2 is only a choice of where we think the code
should be, as it seems to be both project-root and project code.
