Humm... You are right. He granted me an AutoOpts waiver a
couple of years ago and I forgot:

Perhaps, Gary, you can be talked into another exception?
This one for the BSD-licensed subversion.

It is good a start. You addressed the horrid brokenness of the
"%<number>$..." implementations, but not computed arg lists or
callback registration. The issue for Subversion is the callback
procedures so that you can use "%-10{ver}" to insert a version
into the output stream. See:

  http://AutoGen.SourceForge.net/doc/autogen_7.html#SEC224

for more complete list of issues. :-)
