If you want to support older Emacsen, it's probably better. But it's up
to you, and I don't know exactly what your code does (I was going from
the macro expansion you posted).

To me, a package seems overkill for a single useful macro, but I haven't
seen the source so perhaps there's more to it. There was no URL in your
post and I don't see an assoc-let package in any of the ELPA repos I

Anyhow, it's your code, please publish it however you wish.
