adding the after keyword doesn't mark a part as dirty

Bug Description

The after keyword puts files in the stage directory, which can affect the build of parts. When the after keyword is added to a part, it has to be marked as dirty so it is forced to run the build step again.

To reproduce:

$ snapcraft init
$ snapcraft
# add `after: [go]` to the part
$ snapcraft

Note that all the steps for the part are skipped.

This for me actually causes the `go` part to be fetched and go through the lifecycle. However, removing the `after` keyword completely does skip everything, which means it indeed isn't included in the dirty calculation.
