To decide between framework/dylib using a single property instead of the
product's name is the feasible way to go anyways. The Framework item
would just set this property. One is not forced to use it.
Whatever. This is an quite unimportant implementation detail.

Here's your sufficiently rich set of abstract resource names:
destinationHeaders, destinationHeadersPrivate and destinationResources
Let's say you want a certain set of your headers in a sub dir. How you
you specify this using the filetag approach?
