I would argue that some people may prefer many Makefiles so that "make"
can be run in every directory, but a single, just like single exactly for the same reason, for maintainability.

Anyway, I would like to see Automake 1.5 (or should it be 1.6 to be
similar to linux/gimp/gtk versioning?) released first.  Releasing
1.4-based "ultra-stable" versions is not sufficient.  Automake has a lot
of useful features that should become available to the users who don't
want to use beta versions.
