echo [ modules.peek : ARGV ] ;
modules.poke : ARGV : [ modules.peek : ARGV ] --hash ;
echo [ modules.peek : ARGV ] ;

Here is the bjam output when adding the below lines in user-config.jam:
/xusers/fc01260/Bjam/boost-build/engine/src/bin.linuxx86_64/bjam --hash

So, it does something for sure, but it does not seem to be correctly
forwarded to Boost.Build.

As paths are slightly reduced, I was hopping for a small memory
saving. I believe bjam is known to be slow because of its memory
usage, which mainly involves huge strings. Ok then I'll wait for the
python port :-)
