Subject: [Boost-build] creating timestamped zip-files?

I posted a few days ago aking how to make a custom command utilize the
tag feature, but apparently this was impossible so now I post instead
trying to find a solution to my problem.

I want to create a "zip" file along the lines of the following:
<program name>-<architecture>-<version>-<date>.zip
The version is extracted from a .h file, the architecture from the
build, and the date from the system clock. The program name is "known".
But how can i accomplish this?
I currently use the <tag> feature to do the same for a wix based
installer (msi.wix) which works splendidly but the zip is anaction and
actions do not care about the tag feature.
