Well that depends on what it's doing. Currently you have it as a flag to
decided that the win32 sdk is either the one that comes with VC or the
one that comes from the MSPlatformSDK. It is conceivable that the win32
sdk can come from other sources, for example if one is doing a Wine
cross-compile. Or even if one wants to use the win32 sdk from MinGW.
Which brings up the question if this is a pattern that happens for other
SDKs? For example should we consider a "posixsdk" feature? And if so
should we really consider a more general way to specify an "sdk"?

With that in mind, I have a question for you. Would it make more sense
to handle the MSPlatformSDK in the same manner that we handle STLport?
(see the tools/stlport.jam file), i.e. should we have a

I really meant the part that I already put these into BBv2 ;-) If you do
a CVS update they are now in there.
