That's pretty much what happens now. There is an underlying build model
behind the managed build system. I think we just need to revisit it, and
make sure we have the APIs properly defined to fully edit it. And I'd
like to make it extensible so you can define your own build semantics if
you have the need. And at the same time, make sure we have common pieces
that other tools can get the build information they need.
