* The "Depends" rule is invoked in several places, but there is also a
"depends" method. Is the intention to invoke the built-in "DEPENDS"
rule? I know other spellings are possible, but I prefer the
all-uppercase usage for the builtin primitives. It helps to distinguish

* class virtual-target is not derived from class target. Was that

* virtual-target.action seems a bit tricky to me. Perhaps it would be
better to go with a simple get-action/set-action pair?
