Why make?

Isn't org mode small enough to run with *.el files instead of *.elc files?

org.el is the single biggest Emacs Lisp file in the
Emacs distribution.  Admittetly there are larger packages
like gnus that have een split over many files, but still
org-mode is PRETTY BIG.  I am glad that it still feels
lightweight to you, this is one of the goals of its

I would always recommend doing the compilation step.  It speeds
up loading of the file, and the general performance is much
better.  Still most operations are fast enough so that you
will not feel the difference.   However, producing a large agenda,
or in particular recomputing a large spreadsheet will be a
lot faster with compiled org.elc.

The one case when you should not use a compiled file is when
sending be the traceback of an error - that is much more useful
when made with uncompiled code.
