I'm glad it works and fixes your use case :-).

I'm not worried about the 700 Emacs packages that will need to be
rebuild, but I'd prefer to take a bit of time to let people comment on
this non-trivial change.

The new behavior (of not always loading stuff from the user profile and
system profiles) is different and may break the flow of some people.

For one, I think restarting my Emacs server (started at login) won't be
enough to discover newly installed packages to my profile.  Emacs-Magit
may also be impacted, I haven't reviewed if it uses that autoload
function from site-start.el.

Refreshing an environment variable value for a process (such as Emacs)
is not as convenient as re-scanning a directory.

I'll let some time pass (2 weeks), and if nobody objects, I'll merge it
to master.

Thanks for the review!
