Boost-Build :

This is something I've tried to do before, but found it again in
my todo list. Now, we call 'exe', 'lib' and other things
you define in Jamfiles a 'main target'. Inside code, we have 'virtual targets',
that are more like files. This 'main target' term seems confusing. How about
calling it 'metatarget'? In user documentation, we'll define it as 'metatarget',
but since user cannot define anything else, we'll use 'target' is synonym for

In code, we'll have 'metatarget' and 'virtual-target'. Of course, the rename
in code probably won't happen until Python port is done, and changing docs
will not happen immediately. So, assuming nobody objects, I'll file an
issue in the tracker.
