Wait... there is the obvious downside which
wasn't obvious enough for me to think of!
How can one assume that b.el is better than the
old b.elc *before* it has been compiled?

No, this idea stinks!

a.el should hold it compilation until all its
`require'd files are byte-compiled!

But how is that done?
