   Hi Volodya.

   Hmmm... seems the call-locally rule forwards all of its 9 arguments
to the call-in rule. However, call-in rule first takes an additional
'module name' parameter that eats up one of the 9 parameter spaces
allowed by Boost Jam so the final '10th' parameter gets dropped silently.

   I'll patch the call-locally rule now to use only 8 parameters passed
to it and add a comment as to why this is. If anyone sees a way to make
call-in take 9 additional parameters instead of 8 - just holler. At
first glance I do not.

   Best regards,
