I *had* read this but didn't get the significance. I'm not sure
I still make the connection.

Are you saying that the choice of compiler is now just another
feature? And these features can be combined with all other
features? So now I can do this:

bjam debug gcc MyTarget msvc release

to build debug and release versions of MyTarget using both gcc
and msvc compilers (not that I would do it this way...). Is this

If so, I think I prefer the old way since it was actually somewhat
clearer about what was happening.

BTW, I don't see anything in that section regarding compiler choice
or that this has become a generic feature. Having read all the
documentation I could get my hands on - including the stuff in
jam_src which I thought would still be accurate - I couldn't tell
that this had changed.
