Hi Volodya,

This case actually arises mainly for libraries for me (but libraries are
mainly what I write). I sometimes have one library that spans a couple
directories, which correspond to namespaces. I suppose that I just don't
get quite as fine-grained in these as you do.

I admit though that this may be the result of being used to lesser
build systems like MSVS that this fine grained nature causes much more
pain to maintain. Perhaps with more experience using bbv2 I'd move to
a finer grained approach, but currently the library layout I have choosen
seems most natural to me.

That being said, currently at least, I (and some others, obviously) still
view this as a valuable feature.

Thanks for looking into this,
