I thought a bit about it, but in the end I decided that the principle of
least surprise mandates that we follow the same behavior as any other
change to make's processing: that is, do nothing special for included
makefiles and treat them as if they had been inlined into the including

So, we will not reset the intro character for included makefiles, nor
when an included makefile ends and we start processing the parent
makefile again.

Anyway, that's my current implementation.  I'm open to discussion but it
will need to be a strong case.
