It's actually not much of a merge, because the changes I made are
almost exclusively to the build system and documentation (there were
only a few minor changes to source files; mostly renaming #define
VERSION macros to a different name). So the changes are orthogonal to
anything going on in the trunk.

Ironically, releasing 2.0.5-pre1 under automake would be a 2-minute
job ("make distcheck"), whereas under the old system, it has to be
done by hand (so I am worried it will never get done).
