The primary problem was lack of time on my part, not any problem with the
patch. Using "cvs diff" can indeed help. For example, if you modify version
1.30 of msvc.jam, and send the modified version, while I commit versions 1.31
and 1.32, I'd need to do some manual actions to avoid overwriting changes
made in those recent revisions. With .diff, it's all taken care of

And no, using SF patch facility is a 100% sure way to get your patch ignored,
because that's extremely inconvenient. Posting patches is fine.

I'll take a look at your modifications now.
