But to use the trick I still need to compile a custom boost.jam, and I
would prefer to submit a patch for a more permanent (and elegant)
solution. Would that make sense to have an action modifier "unlimited"
(or whatever) that cannot be combined with "piecemeal"? Or an "unshell"
modifier that would just split the commands with " " and pass the
arguments directly to the process without using any shell?
