I'd just like to bump this post once and ask if there is any documentation
or advice on changing the order of directories in the build-dir? Is it
feasible to make my customer feature come before variant? Would it be bad to
make toolset not be part of the build-dir unless it wasn't the one I had
declared as the default for the platform?
