I believe that Sheila meant "it" to be the BBv2 project that references
the various /repos/projN, and hence the Jamfile/Jamroot. The project/ID
location independence you describe makes the answer: There's no
restriction. One could place the Jamfile/Jamroot anyplace and refer to
other projects (Jamfiles) without regard to actual directory location.
