Subject: [Boost-build] b2 option parsing
From: Stefan Seefeld (stefan_at_[hidden])

how (where) does b2 parse and interpret command-line options ? I have
looked at jam.c and option.c, of course, but couldn't find how for
example "--python" is handled. Also, when I run `.../b2 --python foo
bar=baz` I get output such as

  don't know how to make bar=baz

that tells me that all of this is interpreted within b2 without me
getting a chance to inspect and handle it in the Python layer.
