#' @title Target with a custom condition to force execution.
#' @export
#' @family targets with custom invalidation rules
#' @description Create a target that always runs if a user-defined
#'   condition rule is met.
#' @details `tar_force()` creates a target that always runs
#'   when a custom condition is met. The implementation builds
#'   on top of [tar_change()]. Thus, a pair of targets is created:
#'   an upstream auxiliary target to indicate the custom condition
#'   and a downstream target that responds to it and does your work.
#'
#'   `tar_force()` does not actually use [tar_cue_force()], and the
#'   mechanism is totally different.
#'   Because the upstream target always runs,
#'   `tar_outdated()` and `tar_visnetwork()` will always
#'   show both targets as outdated. However, `tar_make()` will still
#'   skip the downstream one if the upstream custom condition is not met.
#' @return A list of 2 targets objects: one to indicate whether the custom
#'   condition is met, and another to respond to it and do your
#'   actual work.
#'   See the "Target objects" section for background.
#' @inheritSection tar_map Target objects
#' @inheritParams targets::tar_target
#' @param force R code for the condition that forces a build.
#'   If it evaluates to `TRUE`, then your work will run during `tar_make()`.
#' @param tidy_eval Whether to invoke tidy evaluation
#'   (e.g. the `!!` operator from `rlang`) as soon as the target is defined
#'   (before `tar_make()`). Applies to arguments `command` and `force`.
#' @param cue An optional object from `tar_cue()`
#'   to customize the rules that decide whether the target is up to date.
#'   Only applies to the downstream target. The upstream target always runs.

#' @title Convert a condition into a change.

#' @param condition Logical, whether to run the downstream target
