Looks like hard (and painful) work!

What's the coding style for bootstrap etc.?  I see some
uses of `command`, and some of $(command) (on $AUTOCONF).
I definitely prefer the latter, and I also prefer (pattern)
in case's cases.

Also, I see terribly complex see programs that could be
nicer in say Perl.  What's the guideline?
