I didn't have time today to look at the patch yet.
Anyway, I had the idea that we maybe should add a generic macro like
automoc4_do_post_target_handling() which we could call in all cases after the 
target has actually been added.
Now this could do the add_dependencies(), later on maybe something else (or 
Actually I also want to have a look at add_custom_command(BEFORE_BUILD) and 
how this differs from depending on another target (via add_dependencies).
Maybe it could be done in a similar way but avoiding most of the overhead of 
full targets. With such helper macros this could be done transparently.
