The advantage should be that it allows an independent upgrade cycle for
org from the long cycle of Emacs. I presume you do see this as an
advantage? The issue is, surely, that it's too much of a PITA for the
advantage that you gain?

If that's true, I'm interested in which bits are a PITA. Is it
fundementally because of ELPA? That is, the latest version of org-mode
has to support more than one version of Emacs? Or, is it having two
version repos, with all the merging?
