    What's worse is that the cua.el (as currently distributed) does not
    work with CVS Emacs (as it has backwards incompatible changes to key
    parsing) -- so if your installer for CVS Emacs could _remove_ an
    existing cua.el during installation, it would be good.

In general, when a Lisp package was installed separately already, it
will be outside the directory where Emacs itself is installed, in a
place like /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/.  Installation of
Emacs should not alter that directory.

However, we could have a feature whereby when a file is added to
Emacs, it can specify to ignore that file in site-list.  It could
contain code to do this, like

  ;;;###autoload (ignore-site-list "cua.el")

where ignore-site-list needs to be implemented to control
the search done by load.el.
