But that basically means auto-generating and managing the compiled
files, so it's very different from what happens with our .elc files.

I would also like to move in the direction you suggest, tho (and
get rid of the Elisp interpreter altogether, while we're at it), and
we'd then indeed be more free to change the format of byte-code.
