Sounds useful (my own install.el of years ago offered that same
functionality ;-).

I wonder about the implications of having a new `dir' value for
package-desc-kind.  Please add a comment somewhere discussing when
exactly that value can appear (since AFAICT you haven't updated all
uses of package-desc-kind to accommodate that new value, and I think
this value can indeed only appear in some of those uses).
