Hi fellow boost::mpi users!

I came across this stackoverflow post which solves building boost::mpi using MS-MPI, but my question is: could someone already involved in boost::mpi development mainline this patch?

Truth be told, I am no big fan of Boost.Build, mostly due to rough edges such as this one. I was out of my mind when I found the project that aimed on using CMake as a primary build system generator for Boost, but was also deeply saddened by the fact that the project was recieved with lethal resistance. FindMPI.cmake is in much better shape than mpi.jam in this regard.

Or is MS-MPI not supported at all? The project page would suggest so, but the build scripts do otherwise. Or are these the remnants of legacy support? MS-MPI has recieved updates in the past few years, so it is far from being discontinued and is in farily good shape. So why is it not on the project webpage?

Thanks in advance,
