As an addition to my last message, I noticed another bug with your patch
that I did not notice yesterday. The info files for my packages from
ELPA are all missing in the info Directory node. When I use
`(package-initialize)' rather than package-fastpath.el, those info nodes
are all there. `(package-initialize t)' also did not bring those info
nodes back. Evidently it is the package activation which is significant
here. There is clearly a lot of work done regarding package activation
from `package-initialize' which we need to incorporate.

I would like to contribute some fixes to your code, but I am a bit
hesitant because of copyright. If I send improvements of your patch,
will it be able to get back into package.el? Because I will not sign any
papers which give my rights to the FSF nor will I license any code that
I write under the GPL. I am fine with licensing any code that I write
under a permissive or free license such as New BSD, MIT, or public
domain, but I will not put it under the GPL. I hate to bring up such a
sticky topic, but I would rather get it out of the way now, before I
write a bunch of code which could ultimately be useless because of
copyright disagreements.
