If that's not on the table, then please tell what in your opinion _is_
on the table.  You did want to propose something practical that could
be done soon, right?  Because this discussion was about what we want
to do from now on with ELPA, not what we might want considering in
some distant future that might never come.

So please, let's be practical and consider alternatives that
realistically can be taken soon.  Like tomorrow or the next month.

Moving out a few large packages that are developed outside Emacs
anyway is a no-brainer, provided that their developers agree.  I
already said I'll probably agree, and no one else objected.  The only
question is what is the opinion of the respective developers: we
cannot move the packages if they disagree.

Is there some other alternative on the table?  If not, we can finally
agree about something, I think.
