Yes.  Or adjust some existing target so that it can be used for
the purpose of `bootstrap-clean'.

Indeed.  So

        make maintainer-clean
        make bootstrap

should be used by those people who want a "clean build".  What I'm
personally interested in is to remove the `clean' part of `bootstrap'
so that I can do

        make bootstrap
        <fix up problems that prevented building>
        make bootstrap
        <fix up new problems the prevented building>

without having to rebuild the whole world each time.
