While I'd love to do something like that, I'm having difficulty in getting
people to stay long enough to become coders, never mind getting them to
learn the intricacies of .spec files. I want to put together some
reasonably generic makefiles that can be used with various of our
FORTRAN 77, FORTRAN IV, C and who knows what else sources. Even the
notion of having a manpage as well as the source is a bit advanced for us!

Oooh! That'll just work will it?
