Actually that's the same as before, no? Deleting from offline-root and
such will not get the file rebuilt, but I think that's not different
from the previous scheme.

Actually, I value faster incremental builds that sometimes does less
over wasting my time always regenerating the internals manual whenever
I happen to touch an SCM file. Just doing
 $ rm Documentation/out*/en/internals.texi
will update it, no need to remember any command.
