Subject: [Boost-build] Restrictions for naming custom variant

TL;TR: In Jamfile, can I define custom variant with name that contains dashes?
In the docs , there is naming rule for main target only:
A main target name may contain alphanumeric characters, dashes
(â-â), and underscores (â_â).
I have tried multiple variations of name in Jamfile and name passed as value to
variant= argument, w/ and w/o wrapping in double-quotes, and none worked for me.
If instead I do either of
- declare `variant ubasan~undefined` and pass `variant=variant ubasan~undefined`
- declare `variant ubasan_undefined` and pass `variant=variant ubasan_undefined`
then it works.
