has it been considered yet to simply support an optional


file that always gets executed before packages are initialized (just
like the current init.el), then packages get initialized, and then
init.el or ~/.emacs is loaded?

So startup looks like:

  1. Load ~/.emacs.d/pre-package-init.el if it exists.
  2. Initialize packages.
  3. Load ~/.emacs or ~/.emacs.d/init.el if one exists.

Are there any disadvantages to this approach?


P.S.: We can even support a setting which further delays package
initialization, i.e. change the order of steps 2 and 3, if really
desired.  It should be as simple as setting a variable in
