I now remember yet another problem with <name>. If we allow to use it
everywhere where <tag> is OK, then what does the following means:

lib a : b : <name>liba ;

Is this a prebuilt library that simply depends on 'b'? Or is it regular
library, which a different name?

You see, <name> unfortunately and inadvertently became overloaded, and I don't
know which of the overloaded meanings is easier to kill.
