Subject: [Boost-build] [boost-build] restrict target directory to dependent features (repost)

This is a repost from boost-build mailing list. It failed to catch an
attention. Would appreciate any help any this problem.
Essentially my question is that can I specify a symmetric feature to be
Is it possible in bjam to restrict target directory to generators features?
I can better state the problem with an example. Lets
say I have two generators G1 (maps .foo to .g1), G2 (maps .g1 to .g2),
with corresponding feature F1, F2.
If I import both generators than then the target directory is
bin/debug/F1-f1/F2-f2 even if I am activating G1 generator.
Ideally what I would like is the output be restricted by the generators
let say I have
g1 xx.g1 : xx.foo
: <F1> f1
g2 xx.g2 : xx.g1
then the target for g1 should be /bin/debug/F1-f1/,
and target for g2 should be bin/debug/F1-fi/F2-f2 and it should look for g1
in directory bin/debug/F1-fi/F2-f2.
Is there a way to configure bjam to adopt the later policy?.
