I'd like to wait with this decision until after Emacs 29.1 is out.  We
made several non-trivial changes in native compilation in Emacs 29, so
I'd like to see how it fares and how it is received by the community.

This decision isn't urgent yet, since Emacs 30 will not be released
soon enough to begin worry now.
