I picked Makefile.inc.am because I think it would be confusing to name
them Makefile.am when they are not self-contained automake files. They
can only ever be used when included from teh real Makefile.am. I'm not
inclined to rename them just for sake of editor mode settings.

We previously removed editor settings from all files, in favour of
putting such configs in the root of the source tree. eg the emacs
.dir-locals.el, .ctags, .color_coded.in, etc

Assuming this plugin:


it appears we could have a $GIT/.vimrc file for this purpose.
