I do think there's at least one aspect of this idea that many many
people need, namely: a simple way to add a directory such as
~/.emacs.d/lisp to the load path, with automatic support for autoloads,
byte-compilation and what not.  Such a thing is also useful if you are
developing some package, say at ~/project/mypackage.

A package manager exploiting this form or organizing elisp libraries
would be nice for some, I guess, but certainly it's a more niche
