In a more general way, I consider the lack of chaining information
disturbing. That is, if you do,

<target name="a"/>

<target name="b" depends="a"/>

and you invoke target b, the output will be:

----
a:

b:
----

I'd prefer:

----
a (from b):

b:
----

And more generally:

----
t1 (from t2) (from t3):
----

or alike.

I have the habit to separate targets as much as I can and deeply nest
them. Such information would be nice to have.

HTH,
