I think the point of contention previously was not from people using Git
anyway for all their builds, but from folks attuned to using tarballs.
So I think there'd need to be a way to create a tarball that looks like
a proper Git checkout of the release, probably with some info put
somewhere to record the exact state of these various checkouts at the
time of the archive creation and a build process that picks those up as

My personal preference would be if everything that isn't needed to
bootstrap Emacs moved to ELPA so that most of Emacs could be kept
up-to-date via the package manager.
