I thought more about this after I sent the message, and realized that
you're on Windows, so the scripts I mention probably aren't going to be
of much help to you. Even if you run Cygwin, it's no good unless --
oddly enough -- you use the native Win32 port of Bakefile.
But rather than recommend running bakefile_gen by hand, I'd rather just
provide a rebake.bat file. bakefile_gen is just too low-level to be
bothering random developers with.

The bottom line is that I'm less nervous about the way it is than what
you're proposing. I'd need to see an actual bug that's fixed by
changing it to want to do it differently.
