I'm massively unenthusiastic about this future.  Things in ELPA has to
be backwards-and-forwards compatible with a wide Emacs version range,
which makes maintaining things much more work.  When you develop things
in "Emacs core", you have one specific target and can make large
internal changes without these considerations.

Emacs doesn't seem to have a massive surfeit of developers, so I wonder
where this plan comes from.
