Re: cus-load.el and loaddefs.el

Without loaddefs.el, it would be necessary to scan all the .el files
for autoload cookies in order to build Emacs.  That is likely to make
a considerable slowdown unless the scanning is done with a very
fast C program.  To be reliable, that C program would need to
understand Lisp syntax as well as the Lisp reader does.

I am sure it could be done, but this change would be of no benefit to
users, so couldn't we spend the time doing one of the user-level tasks
in etc/TODO?
