Sorry to be stubborn, but I don't understand how Jamfile.v2 vs. build.jam vs.
whatever is going to help us. Now, top-level build file is called Jamroot and
all the rest are called Jamfile.v2. The name Jamfile.v2 is configurable, one
change change it any time.

The biggest task now is to compare test results for V1 and V2.
