Sorry, maybe my original question wasn't clear.  The question was:  I wrote a 
command line utility in ELisp (it doesn't provide interactive commands; just a 
command line interface).  What's the preferred way for users to install it?

I don't understand this part too well.  Are you saying that ELPA isn't the 
right place to distribute a command line application written entirely in ELisp?
(Note that the task that I'm describing has nothing to do with compiling 
binaries — sorry if that wasn't clear).
