FWIW, currently GNU ELPA supports this in the following way: a new GNU
ELPA package is only created once the "Version:" of a package is bumped.
So you can add experimental code to elpa.git's master branch without
worrying about its effect on the distributed package and when that code
is ready you can just bump the "Version:" header to cause a new release.
