And to add to your second paragraph: I'm afraid there's a bit of a hurry
w.r.t. to CEDET. Once Emacs has moved to git, all my merging setup will
be tears in rain. CEDET will switch to git as well, but I'm not eager to
first setup a new patch-by-patch merging script and then move to yet
another solution. As I've said, my idea was to import CEDET as a
git-subtree in Emacs, but if we go the ELPA-bundle route, that should be
done rather sooner than later before the two repositories diverge too
