This is/was my personal long-term task, too.

Gary has trying to merge this into gnulib for a long time;  and it is not
going to be much easier now so, to not C&P everything all the time, we
agreed with Gary that we'll have the bootstrap project at least
"pluggable" into gnulib for now.

>From our last discussion, merging those two bootstraps together into
gnulib HEAD (and retiring boostrap) is something which is desired.  On the
other hand, for the time being, we can benefit from the fact that Gary can
have a look at isolated bootstrap code.

In case you'll have a chance to look at this, keep us updated :) !
