Timing breaks down into two components:

* Build (compile/link) timing.
* Run timing.

I don't see any way to get "build" timing without support from Boost.Jam.
But "run" timings can always be reported (to cout) by the program involved,
and then extracted by the post-bjam process. I think we missed that point
in prior discussions.

Now I'd certainly like to be able to report build timings, too, but it is a
medium or even low priority request.

Would it really be that hard anyhow? Couldn't you just wrap all applicable
build commands (c action, c++ action, link action, etc) with a call to a
timing program (which starts timer, calls system with the args ([1] being
the program to execute), reports timer, returns)?
