That's nice but it is missing from the list of built-in rules in the
Reference at

My frustration with the Boost Build docs is with the Reference. Anybody
seeing a rule in a jamfile should be able to find its explanation in the
Boost Build reference. Likewise for features and tools. If it is not a
built-in rule, feature, or tool, but is distributed as part of a tool in
the boost\tools\build\v2\tools directory, it should also be documented
somewhere so programmers who have to use Boost Build can actually use it.
