See the revised multi-args.txt I just checked in.

I don't know about the update editors, but I thought I would jump in and
say that condense_targets is currently written as in multi_args.txt, but
it would be an extremely simple matter to change it. I'll let wiser
heads prevail on what the semantics should be, and make sure condense
targets does as its supposed to when it is needed:)
