Well... if it fits in with autoconf and can handle all the functionality
of the old, then I'd say we torch the old. Why have two ways to do the
same thing? Just adds to the overall complexity.

Of course, we'd like third-party module to not require many changes, but
I'll happily monkey with the expat-lite directory to conform to new stuff
if we can simplify the configure/build process.
