Stupid question: instead of having two initialization functions that
need to replace the normal initializers for preloaded stuff, wouldn't
it be easier to simply redefine the _standard_ initialization
functions in an Emacs used for dumping?

That way, one would not need to have to adapt custom definitions that
are going to be dumped.
