I'm gonna love this..

The values of the attributes can be these:

<define ns="" name="rebuild-modes">
<value>transitive</value> <!-- DEFAULT: build on source change and all
depending packages including indirect dependencies -->
<value>direct</value> <!-- build on source change and direct
depending packages -->
<value>local</value> <!-- build on source change only -->

It should be possible to specify exceptions on a per-package basis. I
would set a project to "direct", but to cater for packages using
static inclusion of a library (prog -> foo.a), one may need
"transitive" in case the library changes as a result of a rebuild
(like when it uses __DATE__, though that's a light example; there is
probably someone doing worse things that change just because of a

<define ns="" name="block-modes">
<value>all</value> <!-- DEFAULT: block until all packages we
depend on are built -->
<value>local</value> <!-- like all, but ignore packages from other
repositories -->
<value>never</value> <!-- immediately start building the packages -->

What happens if projects have a cyclic linking against another?
