This is good.  I for one would like to spend a lot less time on Github.

Really? Am I breaking backward compatibility all the time in Emacs?
Don't we have tests? Don't we have a (crude) namespacing system
for those libraries?  Don't we have Eli, the ever-vigilant? And Stefan
and everybody else?  And weren't you the one the one who told me
not to worry about that when refactoring Flymake?

Really, are you telling me this?  Do you really think I (and other
developers) need
to be actively annoyed to be reminded of that? A file isn't enough separation?
That's not the point of GNU ELPA at all.
