One possibility is to have each ELPA package tell package.el where its
files should live in the Emacs tree.  For example, each package could
have a standard-named file with a Lisp data structure that specifies
this.  package.el would then use this information to place each file
where it belongs.  We could also have a set of reasonable defaults;
for example the tests should by default go to the directory under
test/lisp/ whose name is identical to the lisp/ subdirectory of the
Lisp files.
