Thanks for the information.

I have a couple of questions about this:

1. Is there any way to determine that the .elc file that I have
   on-disk matches the preloaded .elc in the emacs.exe binary?

   Since I use the pre-built Emacs binary when on Windows, I presume
   that the .elc files I have on-disk were the ones loaded in the binary
   but I have no way of truely knowing unless I can query Emacs to tell

2. What are the preloaded .elc files?  Are they the ones from loadup.el?

   Can one ask the Emacs instance to compare the .elc file on-disk with
   the one that it was preloaded with to verify they are the same?

3. Can you startup Emacs to either ignore its (non-necessary) preloaded
   .elc files if the same file name (.el/.elc) resides on-disk or
   tell it to only use the files (.el/.elc) in the `load-path'
   and not what was preloaded?
