Consider unifying export
_suffixes for Generated Files
59 bytes, text/x-review-board-request
The RecursiveMake backend has a list of export_suffixes, which is how it determines whether or not a particular GeneratedFile object needs to be built before compilation, or if it can be built after. The tup backend is starting to use a similar list, and any other backend is likely to need a similar list. If this is the same across backends, we should probably move it somewhere in the GeneratedFile object itself so that it has a way of self-identifying that it's needed before/after compilation.
