I looked at this PR.  Why do you want this change?

Right now if you write:

    AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS = subdir-objects
    bin_PROGRAMS = wish
    wish_SOURCES = generic/a.c generic/b.c

... you end up with `.deps/generic/a.Po'.
The PR asks for `generic/.deps/a.Po'.

Does it make a difference?

As I recall the reason things are done this way is that it is a little
faster to compute the .Po file name when we don't have to change the

On the other hand, changing this might let us have `..' path
components.  I don't see that as a very high priority, but I'd welcome
a patch.
