I completely made this up, I just noticed that autofrisk is actually
documented in the Guile 1.7 manual and it's (in a different version in
the source code). Yeah, you definitly may slap me for too little/no
research work here ;-). I arrived at the impression by seeing only's in the 1.4 tree - that's what you get from judging from
the surface of something. I also might be driven by the hope for a
real flexible, scheme-based automake replacement.

However, I'll take a closer look at autofrisk and possible extensions.
