Boost-Build :

I'm considereing the rename of <dependency> feature into <use>. The motivation
is simple: if I have

exe a : a.cpp : <dependency>b ;

then even if something inside 'b' changes, 'a' won't be rebuilt, which is
somewhat contrary to the <dependency> name. I plan to make the rename in a
single commit without bothering about backward compatibility, assuming
<dependency> is rarely used.

Does anybody have any objections/comments?
