Oh, good :-)

For CW, you need to specify the toolset as "cw-9_4". For gcc/cygwin
you'll need to create a toolset named "gcc-3_3_3-cygwin-tools.jam" that
just "extend gcc ;", like the cw-x-tool.jam files.

This is because of the version of Python used. Python is not consistent
between versions on what it reports the platform to be.

Incremental runs tend to be very short in comparison. That is, unless
some fundamental file changes, like one of the config headers for example.

Probably a good idea to drop it.
