I am surprised at the "never will be intended" part. We rely on using
bjam with msvc compilers from the cygwin bash shell for years. Thread
changes broke this in 1.35, but we are using the workarounds mentioned
above to get things working again. Have I misunderstood your claim
above? If not then, perhaps it is time for me to begin a search for a
replacement build system.
