The significant disadvantage to this is that if we want a stable release
of Emacs, all the ELPA packages in the tar ball now get tied to the
emacs release schedule, because all of the files in the checkout of
elpa.git will be at the same commit. Unless we move all the files in
ELPA git to be external branches.
