No problem - what you committed accurately matches today's gnulib.git.

Yep.  My only concern is that if we don't track gnulib right away, then
3 months down the road the next time someone does decide to resync to
gnulib, they won't have any idea why.  It's always better to fix
potential latent problems when they are fresh on your mind :)

So I'll propose a followup patch once Jim's gnulib patch actually lands.
