I think that a copy-and-paste method is more desirable. It's the
standards-conformance argument again: non-conformity can be worked
around, but why standardize it?

Do I necessarily wish to include all of the configuration magic that
you wish to include? Do you necessarily wish to provide me all of the
configuration information that I wish to include? Will you always be
up on the latest version of my compiler, or in some cases might I have
to hack your config header?
