This is probably the biggest feature request from all of our
400+ developers.

"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 project/everything,
and if I recall correctly, Makefile projects don't allow that. --DD
