I added new exec, exec_file, and import functions to boost python a while
ago, and I adjusted the bb1 build system accordingly.
I wasn't aware of the fact that boost.org supplies MSVC project files.
Are they officially maintained at all ? I'm not able to adjust the project
file you are talking about to include the new source files, as I would be
unable to test the changes. David, what's the official procedure here ?
If MSVC project files are provided, can't they simply be wrappers that
delegate to bb1/bb2 internally ?
