According to:

exe and lib are builtin rules. Do you mean the 1st arg to these
rule invocations in Jamfiles are 'main targets'? Using the
proposed rename, what is the relationship between a 'metatarget'
and the corresponding 'virtual target'? I'm guessing it's
some grist function of the metatarget and toolset and properties and the
rule name.
