Yes, I suppose if you named the stamp with a filename derivable from
that of the .xml filename you could generalize this without having to
write 'n' copies of the rule.  That would be a better way.

That brings up the next logical point, can anyone comment on the
feasibility of some kind of generalized "tool X reads A and outputs Y
and Z" construct to help solve the "tools generating multiple outputs"
case without having to emit big ugly stamp rules in or
resorting the GNUmake-isms?
