To be clear, I never suggested re-organizing the current files in Emacs
-- in fact, I suggested leaving it *exactly* as it is. I just suggested
supplementing it one part of the build, and some changes to package.el

The in tree solution, conversely, requires copying files into lisp/,
adding more non-source files into this tree in an in-directory source
build of emacs. And, as Lars described nicely, also requires generation
of manifests, and changes to the load-path mechanism in C.

Okay. That's really it. Please, John, if I ever post on this topic
again, can you kick me off the mailing list?
