Automatic bootstrap

A week or so there was a discussion about the inconvenience of the
existence of `make bootstrap'.  I suggested that we create a source
file bootstrap.el whose compiled file, bootstrap.elc, would control
whether `make emacs' does a bootstrap or not.  We could also change
bootstrap.el trivially after installing any change which we think
makes it advisable for testers to bootstrap afresh.

I hope that this would eliminate the need for even developers to know
about `make boostrap'.

There was no reaction to this.  What do people think of it?
