Dunno, I don't use "various distros". All I know is that Alexander
gave an example of *one* package that may need another version of
the autotools. To me, hardly a reason to start installing multiple
versions of the same package.

So, at this point, with Alexander asking for input (RFC is taken
as a request for input), I'm choosing to see if we can't work
around the issue for the *one* package that needs it.
