I guess the reason for that is that when Automake introduced support for
the _PYTHON primary, no Autoconf macro existed that dealt with python, so
the Automake developers rolled their own macros, mostly tailored to the
specific needs of Automake.

I say the correct way to proceed is to implement python support in
Autoconf, and then have Automake build upon that (maybe extending
it where necessary, albeit I hope there will be no need for that).
