I am not sure what you mean by 'modules'. If you mean projects in the
solution, then no, I never have and never will have anywhere near that
If you mean files, then yes, I have projects with more files than
that, and the team I work in has 3-8 members, depending on the
project. So far, we found that bjam works perfectly for us for many
projects where plain VisualStudio would be a pain to use, if not

There are, of course, projects that don't need advanced functionality
offered by bjam and for those we use plain VisualStudio.

We tried CMake but it didn't work for us at all. We failed to
configure it the way we wanted, and the projects it generated were a
mess we just didn't want to use. YMMV, of course.
