The other problem has to do with the type_converter registry (registering
converters for the same types in different extension modules without
causing crashes). Since I have a work around in place, I'm going to let it
stew for a while.

I'm sure that there are a variety of great arguments for bjam; I would
probably come out ahead in the end if I could start using it. However, I
have a large base of code that I have to use and support that is currently
built with "standard" tools like make (on unix) and Visual Studio (on
windows). I doubt that I will ever have time to port that stuff over to a
new build system. Even if I could do that, I would then have to convince
every potential client that they should also drink the bjam kool-aid so
that I could deliver tools to them.
Maybe it'll happen some day, but it's not likely to be soon. I will,
however, attempt to build all problematic examples with bjam before posting
them to the list.
