Should a user be able to specify a
name
in a generator override field, which then gets used as part of the address? I'm asking because a
source
or what-have-you might not have a desirable name (E.g. leading underscore)
Otherwise the address is
build-support/bin#_generate_all_lockfiles_helper.py

Interesting! I'd lean towards not doing that for now, especially because we've been thinking about how we might want to change the
Address
in general e.g. https://docs.google.com/document/d/17XvhHlx8jBn4K9qFRZPe7qaKJQjTfiKMKYRubnzWxjA/edit# But I think it is possible to implement, given that the target generation rule dynamically sets the
Address
for generated targets

Not a hard no for me, only an "I'm skeptical"
