Hi Noel,

Speaking of workaround, having the following implicit rule

%/. :
        @mkdir $*

you cannot just write

foo : bar/

instead you will have to write

foo : bar/.

which is quite ugly and unnatural. It is one story to write something
ugly in implicit rule (once) and the other to ask users of your implicit
rule to write something ugly (many times).
