Well, to be honest I am not familiar either ;-) project.current is something that used to be set when reading project, so that helper
rules defined in Jamfile declare metatargets in right project when children Jamfile call it.

There was no way to get 'current metatarget' or 'current project' when generating a metatarget. So, my patch in fact introduces such
context -- and I have not considered any longer-term strategy.
