I won't make that change for BBv1, since we're trying to retire it. But
for BBv2, it's right in line with the idea that the Python version
should be a feature. Volodya and I discussed that idea some weeks ago
and I described a way to handle it, but I don't know if he ever
implemented it.

Hmm, from looking at python.jam I don't think he did. In fact, I think
that file is really in a partially-complete state. Volodya?
