I have an application that is accompanied by a resource file. By
convention the resource file has the same name as the application.
I can't build them both from the same Jamfile, despite their having
different extensions. I'll illustrate with an unrealistic example:
I want to generate an application executable and a similarly-name object:

exe application : application.cpp ;

obj application : app2.cpp ;

m10 complains

error: failed to build ./application with properties because no best-matching alternative could be found

which I'm assuming means that you can't have two top-level targets with
the same name.

Is this right?
