I just checked elpa-packages, assuming that the modus-themes were
externally synchronised, but apparently this isn't the case.  Maybe we
could take a look at discussion from when Modus was merged into the core,
to find arguments pro and contra.

That would follow.

That I cannot say.

Oh, that is interesting.  Perhaps this would work too, my experience
with org->texi has been dissatisfactory but limited.
