Using ":" as last character of word to indicate something looks pretty
confusing to me, because now you have ":" used in two different ways in the
same invocation of a rule. Using:
lib foo : foo.cpp
: self <define>COOL=1
: all <define>ENABLE_LOG
: users <link>shared:<define>BUILD_DLL=1
loks more clear to me.
