Subject: [Boost-build] New engine version

Since the new engine isn't compatible with older versions of boost,
can the version be updated, so I can tell which one I'm using? When I
run 'b2 --version' it still says "Boost.Build 2011.04-svn". Also,
should it be set to use the installed version of boost build by
default instead of the one in the boost repository? I understand that
boost build developers wouldn't want that, but for users it seems to
be a more sensible default. There could perhaps be a flag for to do a different type of install for developers.
