There was some discussion about the --targets switch several months
back. See http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2006-04/0831.shtml and
surrounding posts.

There was some discussion as to what the behavior of multiple --targets
switches should be, and how the --targets switch should interact with
other arguments. In the end, nothing really happened with it.
