Details

The $objdir/config/makefiles/xpidl/Makefile has bits like:

$(idl_xpt_dir)/WorkerTest.xpt: $(dist_idl_dir)/nsIWorkerTest.idl
	@echo "$(notdir $@)"
	$(idlprocess) $(basename $(notdir $@)) nsIWorkerTest

Note the lack of dependencies on $(idlprocess) or any of the .py files it depends on.

Can we just import mozbuild/action/xpidl-process as a module and then ask it what its dependencies are when we're writing out the Makefile above?
Hm, I missed the bit in xpidl-process where it writes out its own deps.  But those don't seem to be taking hold in this case.
Never mind!  False alarm.
In my mind, I closed this bug.  I will permit you all to enter the glorious world of my mind.
