I gave this some thought, and I'd like to make it a core pacage also
on Elpa. The only reason I'm not a fan is of making it just a macro in
subr-x is that it wouldn't be available on older versions, and that I
essentially means I wouldn't use it myself.

Is it an option to offer `subr-x' as a GNU Elpa package? Or would that
pose a compatibility challenge given that the file doesn't have
package headers on 24.4?

Thanks, I like that suggestion.

Yes, the nesting will be left for a next release.
