I think this would be cool--at least I've had the mentioned problem with
<style> and had to work around it by writing one hack target which runs
<uptodate>, another which runs the first and then deletes the target file(s)
if the first reported it was not up-to-date, and then the real target which
runs both of the preceding before running <style>. Simplifying the idiom here
would be nice.
