I should add that `Of course Automake should not know about this as we
already know all the problems of impedance we have between the two'.

This is why I should really implement ./config.status --clean that
remove all that was created by config.status.  Or maybe it should be
./configure that should handle this.

Automake 1.7 should actually be released pretty quickly, as, as I see
it, it is 1.6 with traces enabled.  I'd like to release 2.54 quickly
too, with mostly bug fixed.  That --clean, if it seems like a good
idea to you, ought to be part of 2.54.
