I don't think that there is any change of concept here. This was one of the
original ways to build the eln files and I have been using it for over a year.

I understand the concern, but wouldn't it be better to get the functionality
out so that we can get more eyeballs/systems using it to see if there are
any issues?

We had this conversation almost exactly a year ago as well.
The eln files are architecture specific and should not be stored along
with the elc files (amusingly I would love to be able to store all my elc
files in a single location ...). Quite a bit of though and testing have gone
in to make sure that system wide full AOT compilation works and is
distro and packaging friendly.

More on this later. Best!
