I absolutely agree.  My impression is that the current situation is a
disagreement between (some of, at least) the GCC developers, and
someone who can commit to autoconf; but I think it would be a very
bad choice for the GNU project to work around itself.  If we can't
come to an agreement on the list, please ask the Steering Committee.
This is a textbook example of what they're for.
