It's definitely better to get things "right" the first time, but one
thing missing from the system now is any kind of "versioning" on the
macro API.  It would seem fairly straightforward to have a global
"SpecVersion: 2" type header that pulls in an updated set of macros
from a different directory.

If such a thing were to be implemented it'd probably be good to use it
to clean out the wishlist in general, like handling %clean and even
%build automatically (e.g. if we see a configure script, just assume
to call "%{configure}", see a Makefile, just assume to call "make",
etc)
