At the top level, we wanted a way to avoid writing to HOME during
packaging, testing, installs (in this case, it's the .eln files, now
that we've enabled native compilation).

That could be handled by some way to turn off native compilation, or by
some way to comprehensively divert those writes to another location
(e.g. temp dir).  Either is fine, though we'd originally thought the
former might make things a bit easier.

Whether or not we can (or should) try to build system-level (root owned)
.eln files along with the .elc files during package installs (as we
already do for .elc files) is a separate question, and I think the more
controversial one?
