Well I guess I misunderstood your proposition. I thought you were
suggesting to tweak symlink rule to allow <location> feature and use
> > > symlink hello_symlink : hello :

in addition to regular symlink rule which creates 'hello_debug' and
'hello_release' links. But apparently you are about to rewrite
symlink, right? That would be perfect!

Anyways, it is just a convinience tool which would be very nice to
have, but it is not urgent by any means.

BTW, seems to me we don't have any rules for running unit tests in V2,
do we? I've seen in your M4 plan some references to boost.test
integration. Is it going to happen anytime soon? If not, I'll create
my own rule for simple testing, but if test-suite rule is on the way,
I would rather hold off until it is ready.
