Would it not be possible to put elpa.get into emacs.git as some kind of

The reason I ask, is that I try to keep Emacs running somewhere close to
trunk for my daily emacs, but I find that I get mysterious errors in
unrelated packages. These are normally solved by deleting my
.emacs.d/elpa directory and starting from fresh (my config, like many I
am sure, makes this easy).

It would be nice if running make clean on emacs.git checkout would also
do a make clean on its related elpa.git.

Just a thought.
