Subject: Renaming SUBDIR to SUBDIRS?

currently the category Makefiles and the top-level Makefile contain many
lines of the form
I would like to change all these instances to
as SUBDIR is a list of subdirectories and not the name of a single
subdirectory. Implementing that change is not hard, but convincing
old-style developers that the change is reasonable might be harder.
By the way, make(1) allows variable names longer than 6 bytes, and we
aren't on a 6-bits-per-byte, 6-bytes-per-word machine where every single
bit counts. ;)
Are there any strong objections against this change?
