   [annoying archeology]

   If i can [satisfy curiosity] i'm willing to [...] contribute
   to gnulib a @(sub-) section of texinfo, so the last question
   is: Would gnulib accept such a contribution?

Another idea is to presume the two-methods status-quo is a
mistake and "rebase" one method on the other.  For example:

Any objections if i work up a patch based on this approach
(i.e., rewrite ‘gl_DISABLE_THREADS’ and add docs)?
