When Alexandre last commented on a request like this, one comment that
wasn't already mentioned in this thread was this issue: a patch for
nicer output should not cause hugely increased files. size is an issue for some larger projects.

There have been several patches, and a couple of add-on projects, posted
on either this list or automake-patches.  At least one of them was ready
to use IIRC.  Please look them up.  I might consider looking at one
eventually, but right now that isn't one of my priorities.
