Hi emacs-devel,

Can package.el install binaries?  That is, if my package includes a command 
line interface, can I ask package.el to install it to somewhere like 
.emacs.d/bin, or ~/.bin?  Or should I do this by adding autoloaded code that 
runs at package installation time?

The only alternative option that I know of is to use Cask to install a local 
copy of the package, and then use "cask exec" to run the command line tool.  
Obviously, this doesn't work too well for a general purpose tool that users may 
want to run from arbitrary directories (as an example, think of a 
code-indentation tool that would use Emacs to reindent a source file).

Can package.el help? Otherwise, does anyone have experience with this sort of 
set up?
