Of course, but that's not the issue.  The problems are rather:
- The machine on which the GNU ELPA archive is built is a small virtual
  machine, with fairly few software packages installed, currently.
  We can add more, of course.
- Since the GNU ELPA archive is auto-built nightly from the `elpa'
  branch and (inevitably) many people have write access to the `elpa'
  branch, there's a security issue if we run just arbitrary code from
  the `elpa' branch.
