Do you mean something like doing this for install, uninstall targets,
and the like?

That would be fine with me.  However for non-trivial targets sometimes
weird special handling is required.

Or do it by matching against the names of the targets.  There are
probably a small number of targets like this, so we could handle it
via a list of regexps.

Or do I misunderstand?  Your explanation is a bit abstract.  Maybe
some more concrete examples would help.
