I don't necessarily think it's simpler, but it's less ugly. We
definitely don't want to create dummy intermediate files. But yes in
the complex cases we may have to write the rules by hand; I don't
think that's a big deal, there aren't that many places that need it
anyway. And if it gets really too complex, well then maybe having a
#ifdef in the rc file doesn't look so bad...
