Is there any plan to merge in some of the useful changes from JamPlus such as these:

    Workspace/Project Generator: Output project files for the Visual Studio IDE, Xcode, and CodeBlocks.
    Network Cache: Any to-be-built target can be retrieved from one or more shared network caches of prebuilt targets.
    Dependency (Header) Cache: When dependency information is scanned, it is cached for the next build, offering a huge performance boost.
    Batch Compilation: JamPlus is able to batch files to tools that support it, such as the Visual C++ compiler.

Though I guess the Dependency Cache is what is being discussed here and is already in place with no significant improvements.

If there isn't, I may be interested in trying to merge them in myself if licensing permits.

Closer look - indeed. The comments in the boost implementation don't
include the additional notes from the original patch, but otherwise
the features are there. The other changes are for the network cache
feature in
