Hi there,

In msvc.jam, there is three lines of comment saying:

# is it possible to combine these?
# make the generators non-composing, so that they don't convert each
# into separate rsp file.

I wonder if someone can solve this issue? Combining all cpp sources
into one RSP file greatly *improves* compilation performance. In
contrast, current implementation is *MUCH* slower then using DEVENV
VC project file because VC DEVENV puts app cpp files into a single
RSP file.

Bjam is a good tool in every aspect. It just happen that I have adopt
it into several mission-critical projects. And build-time of Bjam in
VC project is significant slower than using DEVENV. It's really
discouraging. So any helps are greatly appreciated.
