When a rule is invoked, if there are <b><tt>actions</tt></b>
with the same name as the rule, the <tt>actions</tt> are added to
updating actions for the target identified by the rule's first
argument. It is actually possible to invoke an undeclared rule if
corresponding actions are declared: the rule is treated as empty.
