See m4/libtool.m4 in Libtool HEAD to see how we managed the changeover to an
entirely new API while not breaking support for configure.{ac,in} files that
were written to the old API.

Not me :-(  Why not support the old API when autoconf makes it so easy?
Tracking a moving gnulib is hard enough work as it is.  I'm thinking of
putting a gnulib snapshot into CVS m4 so that people will still be able
to link it when CVS gnulib moves on :-(

After libtool 2.0 eventually makes it out into the big wide world,
libtoolize may very well go away entirely...
