I guess so, I just hadn't found an indication in the docs or examples
of how to write it (and in particular how to get at the output file
names from the "body" ("prepare" property) of the rule! Luckily the
answer is to be found in msvc.js :)

I'd previously understood that a non-multiplex (uniplex? ;) rule is a
one-to-one mapping (bijection), whereas a multiplex rule is a
many-to-one mapping (surjection). Now I understand that a uniplex rule
is actually a one-to-many mapping, and a multiplex rule a many-to-many
mapping … :)
