So am I.

I disagree.  APACI wouldn't exist if there weren't an
"Autoconf Now!" party. :-)

Agreed.  I just find it odd that the people who have worked so
hard on providing this functionality (mostly but not entirely Ralf)
haven't devoted at least a little effort to getting the real thing
to work in the 2.0 tree -- or at least a skeleton.  They clearly
have a deep understanding of how autoconf works, which is much
more than I have -- so I hope they'll use some of that expertise
to make the 2.0 autoconf environment as excellent as possible.
I'd rather see the effort go there than into APACI.  MHO, though.
