In the meantime I found quite a few unreasonable things in there :)

Here is an update which could hopefully be added to the trunk. It also
contains ported mc.jam and midl.jam. It seems to work well (in the
subset of its quite broad functionality I tested) and I'd like to send
it out there to possibly get some feedback. I also plan to use this
quite a lot personally, so any potential left-over bugs should be found

Secondly - I observed a little inconsistency with the old boost build.
In Python Port if I invoke project build with toolset=msvc (or without
specifying the toolset at all) on the command line the created directory
structure is


The old bb detects that I have vc9 and creates


If I explicitly specify version on the command line (toolset=msvc-9.0)
then it works. Any hint where to look for this?
