Personally, I'm not crazy about this. It makes the whole thing even harder
to understand and requires to even more arcane knowledge of bjam to make
sense of it. On the other hand, I'm not inclined to touch it either.

CW is the only platform where I had this problem. I was pretty sure I had
it on cw 9.2 as well but we'll see how this works out.
