Hmm, maybe. Just another thought:

lib boost_program_options : : <name>@make-name ;

Where <name> is allowed to have a rule attached, and is called with a
similar set of parameters as <tag>@mytags rule. The difference would be,
that the return value shall change real-name as opposed to name (as tag

Btw.: Could someone please explain to me why the "name" is not
sufficient? Why does a SEARCHED_LIB need "real-name"? I thought the name
of a virtual-file-target already is supposed to be the name in the file
system, not?
