That would be my preference, and would be less confusing
to new users than having to use the <tag> feature, since it
is a very common use-case for libraries on Unix.

So, for the following line:
lib foobar : $(SRC) ;

On Linux, we would generate
On MacOSX, we would generate libfoobar.dylib
On NT, we would generate foobar.dll

Is it hard to make this the default behavior for Boost Jam?
