Can you create the following generators:

1. .r to .rsrc-xyzzy
2. .fr to .rsrc-xyzzy
3. .rsrc-xyzzy to .rsrc

where #3 merges all its dependents into one .rsrc output. Then make sure that if #3 has only one dependent, it will simply copy the input to output. Then you just create the following targets:

result.rsrc with dependents foo.rsrc-xyzzy and bar.rsrc-xyzzy
foo.rsrc with dependent foo.rsrc-xyzzy
bar.rsrc with dependent bar.rsrc-xyzzy

Does that sound workable?
