I agree :)

This is all a matter of the Jambase file, which is always up for
improvements. I was thinking of creating a new Jambase file for OBOS, but
ended up just creating a Jamrules file. However, now there's some more
"muscle" behind the build team, it might be worth investigating creating a
more generally "correct" Jambase file, as it was missing a lot of features
anyway (like shared library support and the like).
