This complicates matters quite a bit!

At the moment:
1. Boost.Build should know the list of sources to compile before running the
first command.
2. Boost.Build cannot extract anything from source files.

The best solution I have in mind is to build Boost.Jam with Python support,
and write Python code that will scan the .xml file and extract the names from
there. Would such a solution acceptable for you?
