Oops, my bad. In my defense, it was a bit late :)
But now, I'm slightly confused. How hard is it to edit smoke001 to do what
you want? It looks like a totally trivial change to me. So I'm not sure I
understood what you wanted.

The previous code did that, and you wanted to call recursively sync_prepare
on dependency-list, right?
I think that's why I didn't like it much.
In my opinion, there is no need to worry much about -Se. Where is this option
If there are use cases for it, it probably only involes running -Se with one
target. Not several targets with inter-dependencies. So this extreme corner
case doesn't need to be supported.
That is, sync1001 should still pass, but sync1002 doesn't need to.
