I'm gonna subvert this reference to OpenGL to an opportunity to jump in
and get some things off my own chest.

I recently submitted to Guido a couple of macros that do OpenGL
detection. I was unaware of the politics involved in the existence of
two ac-archives. I would just like to say: for heaven's sake,
gentlement, work this out. It's ridiculous for two completely separate
ac-archive projects to exist. autoconf has a steep enough learning curve
as it is. The ac-archive should be something that makes new users' lives
easier--not something that baffles them further.

>From my own point of view, there needs to be a single point of
submission. Otherwise, new macros are likely to go to each of you in a
haphazard fashion. I cannot imagine that to be a desirable situtation.
