In another life, when I was forced to work with MSVC, I modified the project
settings to simply run 'make' underneath. As a consequence, I never again
touched the project file(s), but only maintained the make-based build system.

The same should be possible with MSVC vs. bb1/bb2. However, as I don't know
what the reason is for boost.org to provide MSVC project files in the first place,
I don't know whether the above strategy would help anybody at all.
