But this would mean that one cannot use such a package if it is NOT
byte compiled. Maybe not the recommended behaviour, but personally I
don't compile Tramp because I perform tests with different (X)Emacs

And I don't know whether it is preferrable to urge users for
compilation. They might use the same package on a mounted directory,
on different hosts, which is the case for me @ work.

Best regards, Michael.
