My fear is that this change of concept will delay the release of Emacs
28, because we are moving the carpet under our feet too close to
cutting the release branch, and will most probably bump into problems
we didn't see until now.

Also, please note that the *.eln files are stored without keeping the
subdirectory structure below lisp/, they are all lumped in the same
directory, unlike the *.elc files.  I guess next we will be asked to
preserve the tree structure...
