Not to be contentious, but how much of an impact could that really have for
Emacs packages? I use >350 packages, and my site-lisp is 400M. Even if I
auto-updated everything, every day, that's *still* ~1% of my disk, which is
what I usually allocate for trash accumulation.

Your argument that no other package system replaces packages by moving them to
the trash is valid, though; I don't know of any that do that. Thus, I can't
argue that it's the right thing to do here.
