I would like to not add any new core libraries, until the day we need to
depend upon them from other core libraries. New development, as much as
possible, should be directed to ELPA. The whole point of this new ELPA reorg
is that, by making it easy to include ELPA code in the distribution, there is
no longer any real reason to pull new code into core.  The core of what Emacs
does changes relatively little from version to version.
