I'm afraid we don't have mechanisms for any of this. Sorry.

Here's what you can do, however:

1. File an enhancement request at
2. Specify the mechanism you like, and add the spec to the enhancement
3. Hack builtin.jam so that toolset feature is not marked as "symmetric".
4. Path property-set.jam, 'as-path' method, to do anything you like.

3 and 4 are stopgap measures, actually. Unfortunately I might not have a time
to design a solution myself as we're working on C++ Boost issues.
