True, but see below.

Umm, what good does that do?

OK, lets see if we can design a descent testing suite, just thinking out
loud here:

1) Can I have a stage target that directs the "installed" lib to a path of
my choice?
2) Can I make the build of an executable depend upon a stage target being
built first? (Last time I asked for bbv1 the answer here was no).
3) I can add <runtime-link>static etc build requirements to a target, but
can I make "release" or "debug" also build requirements?

If "yes" to all of the above I think we could do something like define one
exe and one lib target for each build combination (tedious but there are
only eight of them, so it's do-able), and then all the combinations would
(hopefully) get tested?
