Subject: [Boost-build] RFC: Cleaning up the rule.

   Hi all.

   Anyone have anything against simplifying the rule to
return an error in case no project instance has already been created for
the given module instead of lazily creating a parentless project for it?

   I just tested it and no internal Boost Build tests use this case nor
does the latest Boost library build require it.

   As I see it, projects are always created using project.find() or a
direct project.initialize() call, and the rule is called
only for modules that already have an assigned project instance.

   Best regards,
