Branko already knows this, but if it isn't clear to others: modifying
apr(-util) to use something like gen-make isn't really that far out. If
somebody wants to tackle it, then please feel free.

I'll note that the problem is *greatly* simplified over what Subversion
has to deal with. APR(UTIL) only produces a single target library plus
some test programs. That is a boatload of simplification compared to SVN's
multiple libraries, multiple executables, SWIG bindings, test programs,
blah blah blah.

Such a script would have a minor preference towards Perl (as apr(util)
don't use any Python yet), but I don't see any real problem in using
Python either. Of course, it would need to stick to "buildconf" time,
rather than configure/make time (since perl/python would not be available
at those points). (personally, I'd recommend Python so that it could use
ezt like gen-make does for the .dsp files)
