Hmm, how do I try this out? Where do I get it from? I thought I
could get it from the boost CVS server but the options/help.jam file
there was last modified there more than two months ago. At first I
thought it was a problem with viewCVS using a non-up-to-date backup
CVS server so I waiter for a day but still nothing changed. Could you
please tell me where I can find the current development version of
Boost.Build including your changes to options/help.jam? I'd love to
try them out.

Is there a way to schedule an action after all of the header scans
have finished or is it really necessary to handcraft some kind of
chaining manually?
