Thanks for sharing.  I'm a little weary of yet-another-homegrown-build
system [4] (albeit jam fork here), but on some digging I found an
example [1], Lua module jamfiles [2], and motivation [3].  I'm curious
if there's any more recent or detailed published description of the
motivation given below, particularly in relation to the bigger names
of cmake and bjam.

  "I love CMake, but when push came to shove, Jam's speed and more
expressive language (such as the variable product expansion ability)
won out." [3]
