Partly implemented, see toolset.jam. However, it would be nice if somebody
takes this over. Dave, do you have anything in your V2
task pipeline?

Basically, there are three missing bits:

1. Using

flags gcc {some var} ...

to catch all rules in "gcc" module is not supported.

2. If there are any dependency property, then by the time
that property arrives to toolset.set-target-variables, then
value of the property is the instance of 'virtual-target' class.
When setting the value of variable, it's is necessary to
call 'actualize' on that instance, like I do in gcc.jam, line 53.

3. I've actually briefly looked at V1 "flags" and implemented
something similiar. So, more thought and testing is needed.
