JG> What you can do is implement a new generator class. In its run rule
JG> you get all the source targets as Boost Build's virtual-target objects
JG> which you can then easily analyze to see if they are typed targets and
JG> what their type is. See the comments in generators.jam & targets.jam to

JG> parameter is a property-set object representing usage requirements to be
JG> applied to all dependent targets and the rest is the list of newly
JG> generated virtual targets.

Thank you ! Thank you ! Thank you !
