status.m4 contains a code which supports this, so until now I had no
idea that this may be deprecated.  I think this feature was available
since the beginning of Autoconf.

I understand that there is no real reason to use this feature, but
OTOH, when we remove it we'll again hear cries that "the Autotools
people are never able to produce a backward compatible release".

Shouldn't we rather maintain the feature?

Have a nice day,
