Yes, the interpreter is almost finished (only a few minor features remain).

In my search for a perfect build engine I went to a tangent course: :)

This is a fork of SCons with MUCH better speed and some unique
capabilities. Waf is _very_ fast - it requires just 5 seconds to do a
no-op build for infamous test (pure Jam
requires 1.5 seconds).

Currently, I don't have much of free time (I'm moving to Ukraine from
Russia), but I'll try to create a finished version of BJam.C++ as soon
as possible.

With respect,
