Thanks, Rene.

I've only two minor questions:

1. Would you be willing to add a test for <version> feature, provided I'll
describe adding new tests in the docs. I think it will take about 5-10 mins
to add the test for the first time (I hope I won't write anything confusing
in docs)

2. Looking at

local path-to-source = [ path.relative-to
[ path.make [ on $(<) return $(LOCATE) ] ]
[ path.make [ on $(>) return $(LOCATE) ] ] ] ;

I'm not sure it will work when building from subdir. If
$(>) is located at "../..", will path.relative-to work? I'll be offline
for 2-4 hours now, but will try to really break this when I'm back ;-)
