Volodya had proposed using bjam itself to parse Jamfiles. If I
understood correcly, a series of stubs would forward instructions in
Jamfiles to the appropriate calls in PyBB.
I'm not familiar with the internal of bjam so I can't really say if an
AST exists and is easily usable.
As for the compiler compiler, yes, I think that eventually a pure
Python parser should be created for Jamfiles or any other language.
