Your occasional reminder that autoconf and mercurial suck....

OK, so update your xemacs branch with Mercurial, and do
hg diff -r 1257b938f03a -r dec62ca5a899 | wc
(yes, I really do think you find out everything you want to know from
wc). That's what the commit bot tried to stuff down our throats,
because I committed this patch:
hg diff -r dec62ca5a899 -r 75975fd0b7fc
and then merged.
1. We could tell the commit bot not to diff merges.
2. We could make a policy of rebasing branches which are not
otherwise public. (That would jolly well suck in Mercurial, but
so do 20 line patches generating absurdly large diffs.)
3. We could hg remove configure which would halve the spew in this
Note that I haven't mentioned option 4 but I'm definitely thinking it!
Or we could do some combination of 1 .. 3.
