I tend to disagree, but it is debateable. Maintaining the
configure.ac requires a good knowledge of the Bourne shell,
but maintaining the Makefile.am's is much easier.

As well here has already been a volunteer to maintain this
and I have no plans to abandon it either.

Certainly there will be growing pains in the beginning until
it stabilizes. This is why I suggested doing it in parallel
and keeping the existing Makefiles -- if you don't want to
use the autoconf stuff, just don't run configure. no?
