etags will already do this if you run it on parse.y and parse.c.
I've always found this a bit annoying.  Usually I use some Makefile
rule I didn't write to generate TAGS.  So parse.c is included, but I
don't want it, since I never want to edit it.  In this scenario it
would be convenient if etags ignored the generated file.
