FWIW, I disagree.  There is still a small but significant user base that
uses Autoconf-2.13; GCC is still in the process of moving to 2.59.

Let's revisit this issue once 2 GCC *releases* have happened that do not
employ 2.13 any more, please.  If we care about having less backward
compatibility code in Autoconf, then we simply need to be more cautious
in adding problematic code.
