Subject: [Boost-build] New IDL type windows?
From: Pete Couperus (pcouperus_at_[hidden])

I am using boost-build and was wanting to integrate a tool we have which
takes .idl files and generates .cxx files. I can register a new type,
and with the idl extension on linux and integrate this tool fine on
linux, but on windows, I get (unsurprisingly):

error: Attempting to specify multiple types for suffix "idl"

I was looking through the source to see if there was anything along the
lines of an "unregister" in the types.jam. Is there a standard
workaround for this (other than changing to use something other than the
idl extension), or am I missing something?
