After seeing a few more bootstrap patches go through, I'm motivated to 
revisit this idea again.

To keep things simple, could we just extend the existing bootstrap script 
so that, once it has fetched gnulib sources and before doing anything 
else, it updates itself and re-exec's itself if there are any changes?  
That would be better than maintaining a separate script that still won't 
be trivial and that will gradually fall out of date as well.

Of course, the sync feature could be optional and off by default.
