And it probably needs to be clarified that bbv2 does not support
creating libraries *without* the lib prefix anymore.
This will bite me because I have inherited a project where libraries are
created (using bbv2) without the lib prefix. OK no problem so far if all
of a sudden all libraries have a lib prefix. But now there are other
tools that refer to these libraries with the name of the libraries
OK I agree that this project is probably not organised very cleanly but
otherwise we can also say that the flexibility of bbv2 (to adapt to this
situation) is reduced.
