I've just gotta give you "kudos" for the work you're doing on the build
generation tool. It started as a quick hack to get rid of automake, and
"organically" grew from there giving changing constraints over a couple
years. Then Windows build stuff was wedged in there. Then more demands
upon it (e.g. swig). After all this, it was kind of contorted :-)

The work you've done is fantastic. It's fixed a lot of things that I knew
were busted or could be done better. And you've done a great job to break
it down into logical steps, and annotated each one as appropriate with
things like "no change on the output", or as above "textual change, but no
logical change". Great stuff, and it makes it very helpful for people
(like myself) who have more time to look at your work then to dig in and
help out.
