Let me clarify something here, it provides mechanism without policy, so
yes, it requires something to give the policy. That is a build system.
What we're discussing here is a build system -- how things get built.
#includes and their include path are a build system in that respect.

What the mapper does is decouple the compiler from whatever that build
system is. (Unlike #include paths, which are baked into compilers.)
