Sorry, BlueJeans just kept disconnecting me, so I ended up just going to
eat lunch instead.

I've been using
https://gitlab.kitware.com/ben.boeckel/cxx-modules-sandbox for this so
far. I've asked folks who mentioned it that adding build2 and plain
Makefile support would be very welcome. I can move this to GitHub if
this makes it easier for folks.

We also have a project here which might be willing to be a real-world
example for migration, but details need hammered out there first.

I've been taking silence to my format proposal as tacit acceptance. Is
this a valid assumption?
