When listing an other project in input_files, it is possible to specify other targets which will be used to build this project.

In tor-browser-build we do this for example in projects/https-everywhere/config to use the common-stretch target and avoid building a different python for each platform.

The issue however with setting target is that it is replacing any previous target. In many cases however it would be useful to keep the previous targets and only append or prepend some other targets.

I merged the rbm patch (commit 87adfb7b7be7e7e0f437020dbf8a119673133412).

The tor-browser-build patch looks good but the commit message contains some typos I think:

s/instead of the prepend option/instead of the target option/

"in the python python" <- not sure what is meant with the second "python".
