Maybe people should read the various suggestions I posted about shorter
paths over the past few *years* ;-) The last one of which is about user
designated feature paths
<http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.boost.build/14852>. It could
certainly be extended to specify a user rule (with the @rule syntax) to,
for example, calculate a hash.
