I believe the author of the script wanted to do just that, but felt he
had headwinds.
Now, it's too late as he can't do open source development anymore.
(Employer requirements.)  I use the libtool bootstrap for a couple of my
projects and I, too, think it would be good to merge it back into gnulib.
I have no employer requirements anymore, but I have my own projects
on the table, so gnulib patch delivery time might get measured in weeks.
