Windows is just the most obvious example of a system where few users
will be able to use the on-demand link-loader alone to import non-Lisp
modules from an ELPA.  However, even in *free* systems non-developers
will encounter at least some of the problems Andy describes using
Windows as an example.

FWIW, I expect no need to contort the on-demand link-loader for
Windows.  IIUC, Emacs for Windows already has support for on-demand
link-loading (maybe better called "if-available" as currently
implemented?), and we didn't need to do any contorting of the "ellcc"
infrastructure that makes sure the right compiler is invoked and links
the module to the Lisp feature system.
