I see what they mean. I am, personally, using .in templates for
anything for years and never had problems with that.
It can be implemented in either way however, depending on what project
leaders demand.

Currently we have these issues:
1. Info pages - options are
   a). .in templates instansenated by configure
   b). follow Love's advice to create ""paths.info" file from
        configure and include that in the info files and use info variables
2. mdoc man pages - options are:
   a). .in templates instansenated by configure
   b). .in templates sed'ed by make
   c). no .in templace - just sed'ed by make
3. roken-common.h
   a). small code refactory proposed by Love
   b). roken-common.h.in and instansenate it by configure
   c). roken-common.h.in and sed'ed by make
   s). just sed roken-common.h

Please vote.
