OK _also_ in ELPA. So people don't have to opt-in to get
it. Good.

OK, so you want to decouple it from the Emacs wheel which
spins slower ...

I wonder tho if people who are into that kind of speed aren't
already downloading the latest Emacs available to compile
locally anyway ... ? Don't they get the latest ERC then
as well?

Or does the "ELPA ERC" wheel (is it predicted to) spin faster
than that as well? Or even faster?

But I don't really care as long as it is built-in as well.
More roads, more traffic, no matter the opposite being claimed
multiple times all falsely.
