Peter, I agree with you about targetless buildfiles...

But I don't see why it really has to be vetoed.
If users want to shoot themselves in the foot, let them do it.

Targetless buildfile support will not prevent us from using only 
targets, as in Java having static code snippets doesn't prevent one from 
writing correct methods.
