Subject: [Boost-build] Python port development

as many here probably know, the strategic direction for Boost.Build is the
use of Python as implementation language, which should bring a lot of
benefits. For more detailed rationale, see:

The port has got so far as to build "hello, world" with gcc, but then stalled.

Fortunately, my employer, CodeSourcery, has a sabbatical program, and completing
a Python port of Boost.Build was approved as the goal of my own sabbatical. I'll
have 4 almost-full-time weeks, starting next Monday, Jule 12.

Of course, I'll be asking for feedback, so don't be surprised when I start
to post design questions.
