Yes. That's kinda ALL I've been working on for several months, what
with autoconf/automake wrapper scripts, pushing and advocating the
auto-import stuff, etc. Geez, Ralf, you *know* this...

My current plan:
build libtool 1.4.2 and call it 'libtool-stable' and install into
build libtool-1.4-robert-collins-hack and call it 'libtool-devel' and
install into /usr/autotool/devel
create wrapper package for libtoolize and libtool, call it 'libtool'
and install into /usr/
Then let that simmer while trying to forward port the robert-collins
stuff into libtool-1.5pre (with Robert and Gary's help, hopefully...)
I will probably release all this stuff on my website first, before even
making it available as an official 'test' release. Robert's new "merge
view of setup.ini's" will make this sort of thing easy.
