Err, actually I didn't mean to name this `.patch', but if you want to
include it in Automake, then fine with me.

I just meant to send it if people want to improve it or use it to
check their own changes :)

actually the converse: Automake has inherited code from
(which name is atrocious btw).

My ultimate goal is to have a single routine to load a .am file.  I
can't think of any valid reason to differentiate users'
and Automake's *.am files.

For instance, I find it quite annoying to have to know that Automake
knows the -local targets: the code of 25 makes it possible for users
to have just there own `clean:' target which will be appended to the
existing code.
