The boost-build.jam at BOOST_ROOT sets

    JAMFILE = [Bb]uild.jam [Jj]amfile.v2 ;

As far as I can tell, the first pattern is not used for anything and
can be deleted. Any objections?

Secondly, is there any reason we can't change the pattern to

    JAMFILE = [Jj]amfile(.v2)? ;


That would allow us to start writing Jamfiles called "Jamfile," which
matches the name used in the BB documentation.
