Another possibility is to use the Gnulib style, but in
Emacs-only modules.  That is, instead of creating a Gnulib
module FOO that implements the replacement function foo,
add to Emacs the files lib/foo.c and m4/foo.m4 (and whatever)
that act like Gnulib, but in a way that's less general and is
Emacs-specific and solves the problem just for Emacs.

You can see a fairly elaborate example of this in GNU
coreutils (see the directory gl).  I don't know that Emacs
would have to be that fancy, but the coreutils code can be a
source of ideas.
