requiring automake is not something I personally would be excited about...  I'd 
like to see how bad a conversion to ordinary sh would turn out..  also, I'd 
guess that a conversion to the less cool but more widely 
ported/precompiled/preinstalled P* scripting language would be a rather quick 
and would not suffer greatly from uncoolness and would pick up additional 
people able and/or willing to maintain it ;)
