    Ok. Lets take slightly modified example 3 from your proposal

lib a : a.cpp ; # 1st alternative
lib a : a-dbg.cpp : <threading>multi <debug-symbols>on ; # 2nd alternative
exe test : test.cpp a ;

bjam invocation will be

bjam debug-symbols=on

With your proposal 'test' target will be build against single threaded
runtime, but 'a' will be build against multi threaded runtime. For VC 7.1
its fatal mistake.

With best regards, Konstantin Litvinenko.
