For now I intend to overwrite the `python-tag` rule inside Boost.Python,
so no other Boost component will be affected. If that change is
successfully completed, I may submit a similar PR to Boost.MPI (so the
build logic change and the auto-linking code change are combined into
one). Once both are complete, it's time to move the `python-tag`
upstream, into the root repo.

I haven't found any code related to "--layout=versioned-1.66", I only
Can you point me to any code (or documentation) describing what you have
in mind ?
