And I think the lack of banners makes understanding configure 
unnecessarily hard. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone when I want to add 
something to configure but have no idea where's the best place to put 
it. Sure, I've been reading it for more than a year, so I know my way 
around a little bit more.

They may be ugly, but they're better to organize configure in logical 
blocks. I find those single-lined # check x explanations not enough. I 
have to read each check again and again to see what is it that they are 

I don't have any preference for the style in division. Do you think you 
could find a way that you like so it's easier to divide configure?
