Sorry, I don't quite follow this argument.

First, AC_COMPUTE_INT doesn't need to have the exact same arguments
that _AC_COMPUTE_INT has.  If there's some extra argument that it
should have for public consumption, we can add it.

Second, I don't see why we can't compute the cache variable name from
the second argument of _AC_COMPUTE_INT.  That is a shell variable
name, and we can prepend ac_cv_whatever_ to it.
