I concur.  Right now it seems like nobody is actively working on anything in 
Autoconf, so if you've got patches that makes you the most active contributor.

I am probably the person who most recently _worked_ on m4sh and I would be 
happy to review the patches you have.

The trickiest thing here is probably going to be release management.  I 
certainly wouldn't mind turning the crank on an autoconf 2.72 that just had the 
m4sh improvements + whatever other patches have been committed since 2.71, if 
that would make your life easier; however, presumably you don't want to make 
libtool N+1 _require_ the hypothetical autoconf 2.72, so you will need to carry 
the improvements yourself for a while, and we'll have to coordinate changes 
between both copies.
