Understood.  Which is why I only did it on my copy (it's nice that you can
throw away a failed experiment with a DVCS; demo-ing this branching
strategy would have been much harder under CVS).

Agreed.  In fact, that's the same approach that Ralf Wildenhues took with
automake - waiting until a formal release as the moment to switch to a
better branching strategy.

I've just done it for the testsuite patch.  Did you want me to also update
the autoconf submodule on branch-2.5 and master?
