I'll put it this way.  If 2.60 adds an m4wrap workaround, then m4 2.0
might come out before autoconf 2.61.  But if 2.60 does not add an m4wrap
workaround, then m4 development will have to wait for yet another autoconf
release.  One of my criteria for a successful m4 2.0 release is that it
must be a drop-in replacement on top of 1.4.x from autoconf's perspective
(and while we aren't there yet, it may be possible to get there in the
next few months).
