Note that this same need exists for non-core packages.
The main issue is to make it possible to build those files on
elpa.gnu.org without too many security risks.

I planned to do that by running "make" inside an LXC container, but my
attempts to make a lightweight LXC container on elpa.gnu.org failed
se far.
Any help with this sysadmin side of things would be very welcome.
