Some questions, because I forgot the answers... What's the difference
between <location> and <name> ? And therefore why use <location> instead of
<name> in this case?

And a question for Volodya... Would the current syntax of:

symlink hello_debug hellow_release : hello/<variant>debug
hello/<variant>release ;

Still need to be supported, or desired?
