Hi David,

I don't like the idea that .ONESHELL will realistically only work 
for specially-crafted makefiles (and that's where, I feel, it is
going). This way it becomes a feature for a "special interest" group.
I would much prefer it being smart enough to be able to work with a 
wide range of existing build systems. Or, at least, issue warnings
for incompatible constructs so that a build system can be fixed.
