I think this is all I would want before considering to try

more advanced makefiles to it.
I'd suggest to try reimplementing DMD/Phobos makefiles with
reggae once you are confortable with a design to see if it
really works up to expectations. These contain some rather
nasty rule mess and can serve as both great playground for
checking design choices and selling point in improving
simplicity / clarity.
The idea was to eventually use it for DMD/Phobos/druntime but as
you said, those Makefiles are pretty hairy and it'll take some
work. I've even considered some way of automatically porting...
but that's obviously quite a bit of work as well.
