The package you think you want already exists, it's called APEL (A
Portable Emacs Library).  I believe Morioka-san et al still maintain
it.  It has a number of serious design restrictions (most important,
it makes decisions about which compatibility functions to provide at
compile-time, for efficiency, so you need a copy for pretty much every
Emacs you run).
