I would say it is, but this is just IMO. We'll have to wait and see...

Again, in my case, this is very useful when building a library, and
building examples and tests that all share some common settings.

I would say that bjam is very boost-oriented, and from my experience,
using it to build something else (in my case, win32gui), has proved
quite painful.

So, I really felt the need for something like this (Cross Builder)
