I'd vote for it. I routinely build on MSVC and GCC and I much prefer the crazy long compile commands
to be hidden away in a response file. When a source file fails to compile, I typically start editing
that file and/or its includes and instead of rerunning bjam, I simply copy/paste the failed compile
command and run it directly. This technique is much nicer on MSVC than GCC.
