I gave the new b2 from current trunk a try with a rather huge project of ours.
The numbers are even more impressive: I get a speed up of 3.7x!
(I repeated boths commands a few times to load everything into caches and eliminate io-waits.)

*** OLD ***
$ time b2 libs tools toolset=gcc-4.5 address-model=32 address-model=64
...found 58715 targets...

*** NEW ***
$ time /tmp/b2test/bin/b2 libs tools toolset=gcc-4.5 address-model=32 address-model=64
...found 58715 targets...

Thanks and keep up the good work!
