Have the codegenerator strip irrelevant features.

The generator.generated-targets presently uses the full property
set when creating the action instance. If your generator
does not use any properties, you can just override
generated-targets, and pass property-set.empty to the action.

It requires that you define your own generator class. This
is not hard, though, the extender manual has an example.
