Yes correct, that's what I meant, we give up for this specific .elc file
instead of keep on searching.

Ops that's correct, I miss-read your code sorry.

I think would be nicer to have the timestamp test.

Still if the filesystem state changes the result could be incorrect, ex
one could even remove the .eln file and even if the definition is coming
from it we'd return the .elc.  Perhaps we should document this?
