I guess 'msplatformsdk.jam' that you posted is a good start for
implementing PSDK support. We will be able to add other PSDK-related
functonality step-by-step.

Basically, I have only one concern about these features. They all are
MSVC-specific and they have tendency to change significantly from
version to version. It seems that the main gain we get using them is
improved readability and more meaningful names. Maybe it would a good
idea to move the most specific of them to some kind of an optional
package? So that a user will be able to choose whether to use them or
use plain <cxxflags>.

I missed this part. Don't we need LIBRARIES any more?

I don't have comment for this file. Looks good. :)
