I'm afraid it would become unmaintainable, with no means to really
step forward.  The dependencies between one and the other are due to
history: there was no means for Automake to be independent of
Autoconf: it had to know the Autoconf macros.  It no longer does: as
soon as --trace support is enabled, Automake becomes Autoconf
independent (well, of course it needs 2.5x).
