This sounds really interesting. Is this just a long-term possibility or do
you have any plans (use a language a la Jam, use only Python, base it on
BBv1 or BBv2)?

I love BBv2 as it is but I think there's plenty of room for enhancements,
namely regarding performance (despite Volodya's and others' excellent
efforts), and full integration with Python would be awesome: we use Python
to generate Jamfiles..
