I think it would be nice to make user-config.jam into a project. So, you can
use all the rules you can use inside Jamfile. Also, projects without explicit
parents will be considered children of user-config.jam.
The first part of the change mean you can define targets, constants and have
use-project calls in user-config jam. This is already possible if you add
import project ;
project.initialize $(__name__) ;
but the above is not nice.
The second part of the change means that all Jamroot files will inherit
properties from user-config.jam. So, you can write
project : requirements <include>/home/ghost/local/include ;
in user-config.jam and all your projects will get this requirements. I recall
this was requested once. The code change is pretty trivial.
