"correct direction" ??  Maybe I should have remembered the title,
instead of reading, "modify fix includes" too literally.
"fix-header.c" is a different program that is included in the
more-or-less same process as the "fixincl" program that I wrote.
For aesthetic reasons, it would be nice to incorporate its
functionality into the "fixincl" program.  I looked at doing that
a few years ago, but determined it was more effort than it
was worth (to me).  At this point, now that fixincludes is
a semi-autonomous installable project, it would be a good thing
to do.  Not today. Meanwhile, as far as "correct direction" is
concerned, I'd have to "read the source, Luke" to try to
re-understand what fix-header was doing.  Sorry.  :(
