Yeah, I saw that, and that would be a good way to go. I guess these
packages are developed in core though (i.e. it's their primary
repository)? For assess, it's nice to be able to develop them outside of
core, because that makes it easier, for example, to test against
multiple versions of Emacs (I am trying to support two major versions).

I've also got working code that takes an ELPA package and copies it into
the core build. It's quite simple to do actually, the documentation
needs improving and to plump in some configure options. It would raise
the possibility of having a "Emacs minimal" core distribution (i.e. with
no "elpa" packages). Interested?
