Unfortunately I think that Boost-Build does not need bjam
written in C++ with spirit or utf-8 support or even speed improvments.
- To have basic features that CMake and autotools have for years like
- Documentation so writing new Boost library would not become total
and absolute nightmare to somebody who is familiar with better
- It may even need to be totally replaced with CMake at all. And
I don't like CMake too much but it is only existing relatievely
mature build tool that supports MSVC.
Sorry if I may be heard rude, but what is Boost need is Boost-Build
replacement or significant functional and usability improvement.
