Having a support for modules in packages would be cool indeed. But
building binaries that work across linux distro is going to be very
painful especially since the modules is very likely going to be linked
against others libs. So an ELPA like system for pre-built modules is
probably not a good idea... I think it's best to stick to compiling
them on the user machine. Which is also tricky to get right obviously.

Tom Tromey's FFI module could be shipped with Emacs so that Lisp
program could use external libs without having to build anything...
but then there is the GPL issue of allowing to load non-GPL code.
