  Right. It's in a header somewhere... probably named
config.hpp or autolink.hpp

- python-tag is used by libraries that depend on python (I think
  mpi has python bindings). Make sure that the library naming
  makes sense for those as well.
- --layout=system should probably continue using the current
  naming scheme (python/python3)
- boostcpp.jam in develop has code to use an old naming scheme.
  --layout=versioned-1.66 should use the old names. (This
  is only intended to make updating Boost less painful
  whenever we change library naming.).
