Oh, I like it.  I haven't used it yet, but the idea is very nice, for GNU
autoconf-ruled packages.

I'll have more comments when I've stretched it's legs a little, but for now,
I'd encourage all DD's (and other people who package) to have a look at it
and give it a go.  Hopefully at least a few people will take heed and make
their packages build a little nicer.
