No, I share these concerns.  However, I don't know of anyone who has
the time to solve those serious design issues and propagate the
solution nicely to existing Autoconf and Automake users.

Over the years several people have tried revolutionary solutions to
the problem, some with nice properties, but none of the solutions have
really caught on.  Most recently, I had some hopes for SapCat


as it had a nice design and analysis document.  But I haven't heard
much about it lately.
