Here's a workaround that might work. Put something like this
your INI file:

[Test build: foo]
test_get = foo
module = Shell
shell_build_command = make

[Test build: foo clean]
test_get = foo
module = Shell
shell_build_command = make distclean

Then do:

$ client/mtt --no-section clean ...

In a subsequent mtt run, do:

$ client/mtt --section clean --force

Or similarly, put all your [build: clean] sections in a
seperate INI file, and after your initial "real" mtt run do
something like:

$ client/mtt clean.ini --force
