I just committed a change that factors the declaration out of
boostbook.jam and simultaneously gives us a system for dropping in new
types without intruding on builtin.jam. I didn't want to cause too much
churn in the codebase, so I haven't done it, but I think most of what's
in builtin.jam could be broken out into types/*.jam. For example, the C
and H types could go into types/cpp.jam along with the c-scanner. I
think we should discuss the specifics before doing anything drastic, though.
