Basically, yes.  I'm already saturated with being the Lynx wizard at
a couple sites; I'm loath to undertake the role of Autoconf wizard
because Lynx depends on unreleased Autoconf <HYPERBOLE> and, who knows,
M4 wizard because Autoconf depends on M4, and GCC wizard because you
need GCC to compile M4 and ... </HYPERBOLE>
