I've had a look at it and it seemed relevant but I don't have the time to
test it right now (I had to get it working, so I reverted to renaming one of
the offending source files). IIRC though, using path.glob can be a problem
in multi-level projects - did you try to use your patch in a project with
multiple Jamfiles?

I think so - it's one of those things that feels like it should just work
out of the box.
