I'd still like to see research into the "one huge .elc file" method, for the
obvious benefits you listed. As far as I understand, the only difference
between the portable dumper, and one-huge-.elc, is efficiency. Given infinite
resources, the .elc method is much to be preferred, since everything we need
"falls out" from existing design.

I wonder what it would take to bridge that efficiency gap, or am I missing
some new feature provided by the portable dumper?
