I am a PITA. :-)

A while ago you (IMHO rightfully) complained about too much email coming
your way, with duplicates due to cross-posting to more than one mailing
list increasing the pressure even more.  I can only assume that at that
time, you were subscribed to the -patches and/or bug- lists as well.

Actually, I was not, and still am not.

However, as you now noted that has a drawback too: some of the feature
discussion moves away from the automake list.  Ping-ponging back and
forth between both lists during the course of one message thread seems
awkward and error-prone, too.

Discussions of automake user-visible features should be on the automake list (in the "open"). Discussions of how to implement those features (i.e. actual code) should be on the patches list. Only hard-core developers can survive reading the patches list.

But maybe now that your immediate problem is solved, you aren't all that
pissed any more anyway.  ;-)

Yes. I am not one to be wasteful. It is held in reserve for later. :-)
