makepipe: Pipeline Tools Inspired by 'GNU Make'

A suite of tools for transforming an existing workflow into a self-documenting pipeline with very minimal upfront costs. Segments of the pipeline are specified in much the same way a 'Make' rule is, by declaring an executable recipe (which might be an R script), along with the corresponding targets and dependencies. When the entire pipeline is run through, only those recipes that need to be executed will be. Meanwhile, execution metadata is captured behind the scenes for later inspection.
