I was also going to agree with Gregor's rationale of not polluting the source tree.  Plus if one wants to use a single source tree for multiple build trees, then you either have to overwrite the config.status or start disambiguating like config.status.${builddir}.

But yeah, I should be able to get it to create config.status's in build dirs.
