Hmm, yeah. I guess I could do that.

I get the following error:

IMPORT error: rule "my-tag" unknown in module "vendor/bbext/tag."

import vendor/bbext/tag : my-tag : my-global-tag-alias ;

works, though, but I can't use my-global-tag-alias without qualification
as argument to <tag>. I've worked around it for now. More pressing
issues. ;) Thanks for trying to help!
