I have tried adding:

feature.compose <variant>debug : <define>_DEBUG ;

to msvc.jam (actually, msplatformsdj.jam) and get:

F:/devel/bbv2/build\feature.jam:585: in feature.compose from module feature
error: components of <variant>debug already set: <optimization>off

Q: How do I add to an already composed feature?
