Good to hear from you, Frank!

What I'd really like to do is create a jamfile generator that would
perform the same function as the 'Ant buildfile' exporter and the CDT
Makefile generator. I'm building an application with both C and Java.
 Right now, I'm still developing a java toolset for bjam. (Any news
on the Python implementation of Boost.Build?)

On a less ambitious note, I'm thinking about getting the
JamfileTargets plugin to recognize additional main target types
defined in the jamfiles, so that one could launch (for example) a
unit-test target. I think the right way to do that would be to invoke
bjam to list the available targets (or maybe just the target-types).

Anyway, I'll be working on this project for a few more months, so I
hope I'll be able to contribute something useful along the way.

Thanks for digging through the mailing-list archives!
