Quit the sarcasm. The thing is: this is how things work in the real world, 
whether it's a good idea or not. The autotools spit out tons of 
incomprehensible warnings (e.g. "`foo' should be called before `bar'", but 
both "foo" and "bar" are called by some canned snippets, not by your own 
code) for things which previous versions accepted just fine, it's no 
surprise that maintainers aren't motivated to fix them.
