What about a different motivation for having the VS projects -- I'm
happy with using Boost Build myself, but when I'm releasing code to my
clients I want it to be in a more conventional form, of which the one
most people use on Windows is VS projects. How difficult is it to add
a feature to Boost Build to generate .vcproj file that contains all
CPP files processed by a build request?
