There's no need for such a thing.  You can simply install the .el and .elc
files and then run the update-file-autoloads to maintain a file
containing all the required elisp code to be loaded at init time.
Basically, your init directory is then replaced by a single file
that's automatically generated from the autoload cookies contained in the
.el files.

See the install.el package I posted recently to gnu.emacs.sources
for a rough idea about how it could work.
