I'm not entirely sure that this is better. For the immediate future, I'd like
us to have a way of "viewing ELPA" from Emacs.git, such that there's nothing
special we need to do in Emacs.git in order to include or rely on ELPA
packages (such as requiring the use of package.el structure).

I see incorporating package.el as a separate issue, and one that we should
solve after we mechanize inclusion of ELPA packages into Emacs core or the
distribution.  Because we're already doing the latter, just manually. So let's
automate that, get it working smoothly, and then after we can have a separate
discussion about whether we should be relying on package.el more than we are.
