But won't it be just as likely that you'll start with something that's all
clean and non-yuck, only to end up trying to cover everything under the
sun and having it become the contorted monstrosity that "configure" is?

Oh well, maybe I'm just being pessimistic because this stoopid build keeps
breaking (not my Ant part -- crufty left-over, and also gruesomely
contorted, shell-scripts).
