Good question.

The best option I think is to turn subr-x.el into a GNU ELPA package and
to arrange for it to be bundled with the Emacs release tarball.

There's currently no mechanism to do that, tho.  And when we get that
working, there's the other issue of what to do with people building from
Bzr/Git rather than from the tarball.
