only_for_build to honor qualifier matrix entries if present?
We have been asked to remove the dependency on cppunit. A first step would be to change the dependency to a build-only dependency since nothing in the release package actually uses it. Unfortunately the cppunit product has qualifiers. Is it relatively straightforward to have the only_for_build mechanism honor a qualifier matrix entry for a product?

- Status changed from New to Accepted
- Priority changed from Normal to Low
It was agreed that this is a reasonable facility to implement with low priority, but for cppunit in particular the best solution is likely to remove its use from art completely.
