Boost-Build :

as you probably know, V2 has a feature which allows to omit Jamfile for a
directory which has project-root.jam file. You need to add one line to
project-root.jam and V2 will no longer try to load Jamfile in the same
directory and project-root.jam can declare targets.

Now, the feature is there for some time and is tested, but... I never use it.
It's simpler for me to add project-root.jam once, than to use Jamfile in one
place and project-root.jam in another. Further, I'm hacking through
project.jam now, and see that this feature involves some complexity.

What do people think about removing the feature completely?
