Yeah, I know.

My thought was that it is sometimes convenient to be able to do
something like:

for f in `find . -name -print` ; do autoreconf $f ; done

But it's not a big deal - it's not hard for the user to chop the leaf
themselves in the case above, and as you say it's a bit odd to accept a
filename to indicate just a directory.
