IMO we should enable and supply a file:// repository with a new Emacs
release and with every trunk build (as part of `make install').  That
repository can be augmented by elpa.gnu.org, but if there's no network
connection to it users will at least be able to install the packages in
the latest Emacs checkout and hack on them.

In fact the repository can be generated at install time by the same
scripts and Makefiles that will generate the elpa.gnu.org package
