Ah... I understand this now.... I might try to change the comment to reflect
my understanding, though not sure I'll come up with any better wording.

And, there's hopefully the last question. It seems like you've changed from
one-line-per-action to whole-text-per-action approach. Won't that cause a
problem on windows due to limited command line length? I suspect output of

bjam --help stlport --help-output html --help-output-file foo.html

might well overflow it.
