looks useful to me.

unfortunately there is currently no easy way to
discover such make targets. (maybe there could be a
make target that prints out usage information for
the most commonly used make targets)

it can be convenient to rerun a set of tests too, e.g.
by providing a list or pattern like 'math/test-double-*',
which can be implemented in a similar way.

same for benchmarks.

for now the proposed patch looks good enough though.
