(Which reminds me -- one thing I've been pondering for a while is
whether "emacs -Q" should imply having the JIT off or not.  We use "-Q"
to get a repeatable Emacs for users, so it would make some sense to have
-Q now imply `inhibit-automatic-native-compilation'.  But I'm not sure.
If it does, should it also imply `load-no-native', which should then be
renamed to something less awkward and documented?  Probably not -- but
should there then be yet another twiddle to inhibit from
~/.emacs/eln-cache/?  That seems like overkill, probably, but it would
be in the spirit of "-Q".)
