Subject Re: autoconf decision

-1 on autoconf on 1.2, 1.2 is the stable release and switching to autoconf
is not a stable thing to do.

-1 on autoconf on 1.3, we're trying to get 1.3 out the door, and switching
to autoconf is not going to help that process.

+1 on autoconf/autolib/automake for 2.0.
