I tried this before, and it didn't work, so I thought it was my
limited understanding of deciders. However, I went back and tried it
again, and it seems I put the decider call too late in the sconscript
file. Putting it before declaring my targets seems to do what I want,

You're probably right. It seems to be useful for 'make', but that's
probably because it misses dependencies regularly, and you regularly
need to do clean builds. My use of it is quite exceptional (I use it
to get a log of all the commands scons executes on my codebase, in
order to drive other analysis tools).
