Re: Organizing package.el a bit

I just pushed a proposal for this (using page-breaks, not separate
files) into scratch/organizing-package.el, but if people don't want me
to do the reorganization, I'll just delete the branch and forget about

The branch is just a bunch of moving around. The only code change is
on the first commit, it moves `package-version-join' to subr.el (with
the other version-* functions) under the name `version-join'.

Oddly, it's causing the test `file-notify-test03-autorevert-remote' to fail.
