my only pedantic contribution to that suggestion is to rename
"TARGETS" to something like "ACTIONS" since, technically, *all* of
those things (including "SUBDIRS") are targets, and the word "ACTIONS"
is a little more self-explanatory.  but that's just me -- obviously,
it makes no functional difference.
