Sounds good.  Please do send it to me (or check it in).

I'm no expert, but I've had plenty of tinkering time.  Enough to know
that it's lot easier than hard-coding Makefile.in in the long run...
The main frustrations are using the right matching versions of
automake and autoconf.

Don't worry about that.  Really.  The build systems, such as they are,
are all really broken now anyway.  For the "texinfo-doclet" module I
can change the Makefile.am very easily, and the build system for
"gjdoc" is just the Makefile that Julian was using for testing and
will be easy to change.

In fact moving the directories to their final places will motivate me
to fix them, because it won't be a "moving" target anymore, since I'll
know what the build system should be targeting.  

Please definitely go ahead and remove the old hierarchy for
"texidoclet" that's currently under the obsolete "cp-tools" module.

NF> I agree.

NF> Brian any ideas? This is mainly your stuff now.

I think we should call it "misc/" if nobody else objects.

Ah, I see what you mean now.  OK, that's fine.  In the
"texinfo-doclet" module, leave the Makefile.am where it is now, and
check it your Makefile.in, and I'll try and rationalise the two.
