Some additional things to consider.
* Should these scripts be created on each b2 invocation, even if they
My first thought was yes, but an unfortunate consequence is that you
will have targets updating on a fully built project. In addition,
parallel b2 builds might interfere with each other. Is it OK to assume
if a script already exists that its content is valid? Perhaps some
combination of the two? E.g. assume that the script is valid unless
--force-msvc-script-gen is passed on the command line.
* Should I add a command line option to restore old behavior, just in
case? Something like --no-msvc-script-gen?
