I committed a patch that was supposed to improve performance and lower
memory consumption about a week ago.  Peter reported that one of our
unit tests for the <script> task now failed (as it added tasks to the
current target).

We talked a little about if/how to fix it.  The outcome more or less
was that you shouldn't be modifying the current target with <script>
so an exception was better than relying on undefined behavior.  So we
changed the unittest and left the situation as it was (planning to
document it, off course).  We somehow managed to overlook the
"top-level-target and <import>" issue.

The unittest has been reverted, now that the behavior is defined.

This is much appreciated.
