EDE builds makefiles that builds dist files for projects.  CEDET's
distribution files are fabricated by EDE's code generator.  If there
were to be a "preferred" Emacs Lisp project style, EDE would be able to
handle it easily as a wrapper on top of whatever the preferred
implementation is, or you can use the same pattern that CEDET uses now.
