Well, that means that we will never be able to switch to another build
system; all will have some external requirements.

But I think the point is that Óscar is not proposing switching to it,
but having the two side by side. That has upsides and downsides (one
of them being that you have to maintain two mutually incompatible
build systems, with the oportunity to neglect one of them).

I must confess that I would prefer what I was asking for: a tool to
make (re)generation of the makefiles easier, instead.

Now, I think I know what you will say: that tool exists, and it's
called "sed" ;-)
