Does that mean products cannot be nested?
Even if a component is part of a product, the component must explicitly
include all the environments needed for compilation (rather than simply
refering to a product, as in the original question). So, I don't
structurally see an advantage of the product-component distinction.
Since this is an old mechanism and widely used (though I have never used
it), I am missing something. The wiki page is woefully out of date with
the current behavior.
