Re: subr-x on Elpa

Not sure how wise it is to package something that acts as a staging ground for things to be promoted in say subr.el, as a package. This was the original idea behind subr-x.el - I had suggested some things to be added to subr.el, but they were deemed somewhat experimental, as some people weren't convinced of their usefulness. So, provided things get moved from subr-x to subr, which I hope to see some day, this proposed package will get out of sync with whatever is in Emacs itself.

Yes, precisely.

I'm never a fan of redundancy, but in this case I think it's worth the evil.
But it would certainly be nice to have a way to link the source of an Elpa package to its built-in counterpart.
