But you are only using the top of the iceberg.  Other people
benefit from this clear layering.

When another user use `autom4te --lang=M4sh' to generate shell
scripts that are not configure scripts, it matters that AS_* and
m4_* are not Autoconf macros, and that m4_forearch is available.

Likewise when you use `autom4te --lang=M4sugar' to process any
kind of input with M4+convenient macros like m4_foreach.
