I've started tweaking V2 code according to feature description in the docs.
In no time I've realized that the change is going to be really small -- we
essentially only split free properties into free-valued and incidental.

But while we're on this topic, I have anyther suggestion. We were planning to
support things like stlport using special generators, which would just modify
build properties. I've done some initial work on generators, and they appear
to be not so simple a thing. For that reason, I'd prefer not to complicate
them more and support stlport et al in a different way.

Let's make "active" properties and features. If build properties for a main
target contain an active property, like


then a previously registered rule will be called which will adjust properties.

Likewise, if there's feature


with any value, another rule would translate it into appropriate defines.
