build can be missing if the library does not need compiling.

The most important one is missing: include. I would go as far as
proposing this single directory as the sign of a library root
directory. If that looks too generic (e.g. if include directories are
expected to be inside examples or tests), maybe meta is suitable for
that as well.

+1. I think nesting should not be prohibited.
