Ah, now I recall the discussion. I knew I was missing something.

Well, I found this one on Windows. And there is no such thing as a "system"
layout. So I think that for <target-os>windows we have to get the old
behaviour back.
And for Linux, I need the old layout for our CMake based builds. At least,
separate naming for <debug> and <release>, so I can link against the right

I'd like to have at least the <runtime> flag back, as I don't care about
threading. We only support <threading>multi anyway...
Rationale: We have to disambiguate release and debug libraries. And a linux
distribution will most probably install a <release> build...
