As a user, I'd be bored to specify dependencies on generated headers. Do
you have any particular way in mind?

To clarify my proposition: when dependencies are scanned you know
1. Main target, which dependency graph contains the target been scanned
2. Complete dependency graph for that main target.

So, if you have a header "a_parser.h" you check if the dependency graph
has a target of the same name. If it does, you add a dependency to it.
