In the long run, of course.
But coreutils certainly can't do that now.
I'll be happy to switch as soon as doing so is not a step backwards.

I'm using coreutils' maint.mk in 3 or 4 other projects,
nearly verbatim.  As such, I'm reluctant to remove rules, since
that would mean migrating them out to each cfg.mk, which is maintained
separately, and thus harder to keep in sync.  Besides, unwanted rules
are easy to disable.
