Ah, the noble strive for perfect software. Good luck, then.

Btw, a simple example where the make(1) approach fails:


.if exsists (my.make.file)
.include "my.make.file"
.endif

... and my.make.file is added in an later commit. Of course
I can construct increasingly complex examples where patching
make(1) simply fails. So much for 100% accuracy.
