Actually, since last evening my mind has been boiling
over with ideas... upshot:  I intend to.  :)

We are talking about <apply> here.  The option already
exists to specify target files with a nested <mapper>.
 We don't currently do dependency checking on
Redirect(or)ed files; these are basically log files so
I don't feel they should be subject to dependency
checking.  If this is needed instead of the normal
behavior there are always custom things that can be
done using <uptodate>, etc.  Or maybe I'm a raving
psychopath, one or the other.
