Okay, I'm about to implement stage targets for V2,
and I have certain questions.

1. Do you want stage directory to be relative to build directory
for the current project? IOW:

stage bin-stage ....

can place targets to


or to


This matters if I want to write:

stage my_project_root/bin

I.e. to stage target to a certain directory.

2. Can anybody explain me the situation with <tag>?

- When change of target name requires relinking
- Does <tag> work now for main targets as well?

3. Is it a good idea to use symlinks on Unix when staging?

4. I've lost track of "stage" discussion on boost-install mailing list.
If anybody remembers the conclusions, it could save me half an hour of
browsing emails.
