And a little follow-up question:

...seems I can (magically) solve this by defining:

  cp = [ common.copy-command ] ;
  actions sphinx
    $(cp) ... ;

though I don't quite understand why this is working, or what that is
conceptually doing.
My follow-up question: The `common` module defines the above
'copy-command', but that only copies files, not directories. How can I
copy an entire directory ? (Please don't tell me to glob() the directory
and then copy each file in that list individually. There must be a
simpler way than that !)
