I get what your recommending but still can't think of a way to do it,
any thoughts?

Am I correct that's a +1 for an outright rename of autofs4 to autofs
rather than keeping the autofs4 directory and a compile stub?

I think what I was intending to do (even though I don't really like that
either) isn't apparent since patch 6 didn't make it to the list. I've
re-organized the series since, so perhaps another post of the series to
the list will provoke some suggestions.

Perhaps the maintainers expected the rename to occur a long time ago
(and it probably should have) since after around three years the configs
are still out of date. Still, as you say, it isn't really my place to
fix that.
