And yes, I think we could safely remove it (maybe) and things would still work (probably)

Every time I run ./autogen.sh the "install-sh" file, which is  
found in the repository, gets re-written. The most notable  
change is:  

-scriptversion=2011-01-19.21; # UTC  
+scriptversion=2011-11-20.07; # UTC  

So I must have something newer than whoever committed the file  
in the repository had.  

A couple of questions arise:  

1) Should that file really be in the repository ?  
We require to run ./autogen.sh anyway right after getting a copy of the  
codebase from the SVN repository, so it would be recreated locally  
According to r9062 (Feb 2012), the file was re-added in the repository  
(after removing it at r9061) to support libtool < 2.0  
Current debian stable ships libtool version 2.4.2:  
Should we re-remove it ?  

2) Does it start a commit war to commit the new version, if we have to  
keep the file ? Regina on IRC already confirmed she gets the new  
version too. Does anyone else have experience of running ./autogen.sh  
NOT changing "install-sh" file ?
