This is one way to do it, not necessarily the only way.
I don't think a 4 line init.el is that complicated ;).

How do you change your functions?
If I want to do it, I tinker with them directly in my emacs.org and
evaluate from there or copy the relevant bits to the *scratch* buffer
and bring them back to emacs.org once it works. If the file changed,
the el file gets tangled fresh automatically next time I start emacs and
used right away.

I don't really see a problem?
