FWIW, my local Emacs build is hacked so that it always compiles with
lexical-binding enabled.  In practice, it seems that most packages work
just fine with it, but there are indeed very definite exceptions, and
even for those packages that appear to work, the change may introduce
subtle regressions.

So, yes, it has to be done "by hand" and takes time.  Help is
most welcome.  The best is to do it with the packages that you use, so
you can more easily test the result.
