+Similarly, every directory in src/ that wants to install a Kyuafile to
+just recurse into other subdirectories reuses this Kyuafile with
+auto-discovery features. As an example, take a look at src/lib/tests/
+whose sole purpose is to install a Kyuafile into /usr/tests/lib/.
+The goal in this specific case is for /usr/tests/lib/ to be generated
+entirely from src/lib/.
