The driving factors are

a) minimizing the impact of other parties changes (adding/removing files 
to/from Make-variables) on Makefile.ams

I am nagged by other people's changes, which add/remove files to/from and are causing cvs-conflicts.

b) Making make-variables better "grep'able"

For now I've restricted myself to _HEADERS, because they are what I am 
currently looking into, but am considering to revive my (>10 years) old 
"ampolish" script to bring all Makefile.ams into the same style, in 
longer terms.
