   packages consisting of a single .el file (the most common
   kind) are very easy to fix up for inclusion.  That's because
   package.el can usually extract the information it needs for files
   following the already existing Emacs commenting guidelines.

does "very easy" include "without modification"?  that would be great.
someone else mentioned that xemacs' package system imposes policy that
ends up not being followed.  what plans would you have to make
package.el operate completely heuristically (possibly w/ human
intervention to fix glitches)?

i think the long-term merit of package.el will not be what it can do
given assistence (compliance to policy), but what it can do w/o.
