It isn't possible now, but it sounds like a great
idea to me. This issue comes up pretty often here.

How does something like this look:

project : requirements <location-property-path>@compute-property-path ;

rule compute-property-path ( property-set )
    local p = [ $(property-set).as-path ] ;
    # change p
    return $(p) ;

This would also allow you to include/exclude
any properties you want.

Volodya? If this seems reasonable I'll
start implementing it. It should be
pretty straightforward. (Obviously
the property could use a better name.
location-property-path is just the
first thing that came to mind)

In Christ,
