OK, I can't easily ;-)

The one use case I would have would also require to be able
to control the ordering of the targets, and even that's a stretch.

For maybe a little use case, we have different types of tests,
UNIT tests, GUI tests, DB tests, etc... each in its own target.

The test target calls them all, by explicitly listing all the
test types. I'd happily write depends="test-*" insteall of
depends="test-UNIT, test-GUI, test-DB, ...".

Anyways, maybe the patch writer would have a better use case ;-)
