I think it would work only for "legacy" Elisp packages that still
install directly to the EMACSLOADPATH (site-lisp) directory, but not
those who install to their own sub-directory, basically those with
directories listed in your $EMACSLOADPATH/subdirs.el file.

One example in my profile is emacs-cmake-mode, which installs its files
