I'm more important, so I get to decide.  And by "important" I mean
exactly what I mean.  Don't put worth in my mouth, please!

Very good point.  The GNU ELPA infrastructure might need some beefing up
before it can produce a good package from the Org source code.  I don't
know the specific, but a few other packages require such extra "build"
stage (AUCTeX comes to mind, as does the recent discussion about Texinfo
docs), so it's something that needs to happen anyway.

I'll happily bow out of this part of the discussion ;-)
