Thanks Dave!
Phew, this list will take some time for me to distill and grasp. But I think you
will convice me...

As I said to Vladimir: I asked this question, not to criticize Boost's choice,
but to learn from Boost's decision to be able to choose for myself what build
system to use for an upcoming large project.

this - garbage in, garbage out...

Thanks again Dave!
