This looks good job, thanks!
I can't understand the details of the b2, but trust you in this regard :)

So I vote for merging and releasing it as experimental in next 1.8, so it can be iterated in the following releases if necessary.

conans/client/generators/ Show resolved Hide resolved
conans/test/generators/ Outdated Show resolved Hide resolved

Yes, I agree. Let's release it as EXPERIMENTAL to iterate it easier in case we need to change some interface. Thanks, Rene!
