I also have different libraries bases on compile options
(multi-threading, static, etc). This is why I wanted to have boost
mangle the name but allow me to place my own version number. If I turn
mangling off and supply my own version number with the library name,
there is nothing that distinguishes a library name with given options
from another library with different options.
