Calling other programs to determine and report a target's dependencies, is
convenient, efficient and not limited by any pattern description language.

This is the reason why I prefer using redo over make: it assumes nothing about
the target-dependencies relation but makes specifying it actually easier, even on
"complicated" cases, by letting you use tools/(combination of tools) that are
more appropriate.

I've spent some time preparing the manual and it seems complete now.

Have fun.
