This one slipped by on the first post. First of all, I suggested this so
that as few delimiters as possible needed to be used - now only %% is
taken by Automake, instead of both %%, ?? and possibly others. This is
therefore a good move. However, as I actually suggested it, I would like
the ? to be placed after the keyword, so the keyword looks like e.g. a
scheme predicate. The ! is of course the NOT operator and is by convention
placed before the predicate.
Just my two cents.
