Ok... putting to TODO ;-)

The primary usage of "<use>" is

library a : a.cpp : <use>b : : <library>b ;

The <library>b means all targets which use "a" must link to "b". The <use>b
cause usage requirements of "b", such as include paths to be added to "a"
build properties.

IOW, <use> means: "get usage requirements", but don't link to that target.
