"IDE [...] build [...] with b2".

It's not clear to me whether Rene's and your point is about using b2
*within* the IDE,
or using b2 to generate a b2-independent IDE-specific project/config. Or a
mix, like CMake.

With Visual Studio as an example, does that create a "Makefile
project"-like config such
that F7 uses b2 instead instead of the "native" VS/MSBuild? What actually
matters to me
is CTRL-F7 to compile a single TU w/o having to build or link the
and if I recall correctly, Makefile projects don't allow that. --DD
