That would be great; you have all done an amazing job so far with Boost
Build v2.

Yes, I think it is the most intuitive. That is, if executable A cannot
be build due to propagation of <build>no and executable B can be build,
then it would be nice if executable B is installed. For example:

exe A : A.cpp some-library-with-build-no ;
exe B : B.cpp ;

stage install
       : A
       : <location>/something/bin

For our application I do not care about any library that A depends on
cannot be build and/or installed. Our toolset currently only builds and
installs those libraries that are actually needed by the tools thanks to
Boost Build (which is a great feature I think).

Thanks a lot,
