Forcing dependencies on wmk

This is a bit premature as I haven't tried the new version of wml yet
(the new Debian package just came out) so if the following has been
addressed, my apologies.

One thing that would be very useful is a way to force a dependency
on a file, or a set of files. This would allow you to to have
pages that use perl scripts, which grab data from other files, to
be made automatically using wmk. Something like

#depends "news/*.wml"

would allow me to get rid of a lot of stuff currently in Makefiles.

Also, does the new wmk check dependencies recursively? It is common
to have #includes (or #use) in included files.
