In fact I found some spare time to give it a try. I did not have
chance to plug it in real project, just compiled bjam and examples.
Everything worked fine for me. Few moments:

1. The problem we dicussed some time ago with bad bison in path still
there. Well the problem is not that build fails, after all detecting
wether bison works or not is probably a little bit too much, the
problem is that after bjam build fails because of wrong bison, simply
adding valid bison to path will not make build happy, it tries to
remove already removed jamgram.c and fails. Starting over with fresh
copy of jam sources fixes the problem.

2. Msvc link command does not have -nologo switch.

3. customization is a nice example, however it fails to run on windows
(from windows shell) because shell is so dumb that it can't execute
./, however it is capable of executing "./"

This will make example run on windows system with windows version of
python installed. However it still will not run on windows systems
with cygwin python from windows shell even if cygwin python is in the
path (python ./ will work in this case).

I have not tested getext, and qt examples due to lack of required
