First of all, some questions.

1. Are the name of the output files hardcoded? If I use "a.m" do I get
"_main.c" or "a_main.c"?

2. How do you plan the "m" files to be used? Could you give a specific example
of Jamfile code that you want to work?

I've tried this (m.jam):

import type ;
type.register M : m ;
type.register CTF : ctf ;

import generators ;

generators.register-standard m.mex : M : C(%_main) C(%_component_data) CTF ;

actions mex
touch $(<) ;

together with:

exe a : a.m ;
stage x : a ;

and it almost works, except that the CTF file is not staged. Is that's the
problem you want to fix?
