Exactly!  They'd be similar, and similarly beneficial.  IMHO YMMV.

Overall, your claims about the intent and usage of the XEmacs package
system are incorrect, although I'm willing to admit that some of them
bear a slight resemblence to AUCTeX reality.  I would be happy to
support my counterclaim in an appropriate venue, but as far as I know
a package system has been vetoed, so emacs-devel isn't it.  In the
meantime, I hope you will stop posting misinformation about XEmacs's
package system.  It doesn't do Emacs any good.
