I think we should *strongly* recommend not to compile the .emacs file.

Perhaps. But Emacs supports having .emacs compiled anyway, so the
docstring for `user-init-file' should be accurate.

It's a dumb thing to do, unless you're a masochist anyway.

Why? I have a medium-sized .emacs (~1800 lines) and it loads faster
when compiled (or at least that's the feeling I get).
