If we manage it as a GNU ELPA package with an included tarball, so it's
downloaded and compiled locally, sure.  But otherwise yeah, it's not so
nice.  NaCl is a nice library with no community, AFAICT, and that's
really my biggest concern about integrating with it.  There's no place
to propose changes or get updates.
