     The obvious canonical examples would have to be lex and yacc.  They
     generate .c and .h files into the blddir, and automake has built-in
     mechanisms to include the generated sources into the tarball.

No argument there, but vala is so much newer than lex and yacc,
especially in terms of Automake support. I don't see the need to create
in these latter days yet another special case for treating intermediate
files non-intermediately.

Well, so how about un-special-casing the existing machinery a bit? It's quite exactly the same job that needs to be done, so at the very least, the existing yacc/lex handling code could serve as a template. With a bit of good look, the end result might be that yacc, lex and vala are all just triggering a single, shared implementation, which can also be made available for generic usage by other source-code generating tools.
