Speaking of that.. I'm going to bring back the subject about file names.

I'm not particularly fond of Jamfile/Jamrules(.v2), etc. And it would be
nice if we could start "officially" moving Jamfiles to BBv2 to help the

So here's what I'm thinking:

1. Use "build.jam" as the project files, instead of Jamfile(.v2). The
name is short, direct to the point, and relates closely to Boost.Build.

2. Change the Jam load behavior so that if Jam is run as "b2jam" it
invokes BBv2, instead of "--v2".

Was there a resolution re: the "project-root.jam" file?

I know it's more changes but we really need to start moving the Boost
build files towards BBv2.
