I would sure like that, if it were possible. How late in the process
is too late to call

  using python ;


Invoking it from the rules that declare python extensions and from the
Jamfile that declares libboost_python would be easy, but ideally I
would only do it if those targets were actually being built.

In v1 that would have been easy, since there was a convenient
mechanism for inserting rules that would be invoked to process the
feature set of any target. I don't know of a similar hook in v2.
