I doubt it very much.  The trouble only happens at preloading time, and
nobody is ever going to be compressing the files.elc that get preloaded.
And if they did want to do this, there would be other workarounds.  In
fact, there are already several (many?) workarounds in place for
preloading files, so another one wouldn't make much odds.

Just as a side issue, what does the prefix "jka-" signify?  Is that the
author's initials?
