Hi Henning,

FYI, I implemented this feature some months ago.
I used different syntax:


Adding square brackets around the list of targets to group them.
I like the "&:" syntax better, so we can forget about my syntax.

The backend implementation will work with any frontend syntax.  If you
don't have your own backend yet, I suggest you have a look at mine.
I'll post a patch when I find time over the next day or two.
