Yes, that would make sense.  But for that to work we have to store the
options of the \usepackage call somewhere.  So somewhere we have to
handle some more complicated data structures.  I wish there were
something like a C or C++ struct in Elisp.  Property lists don't
really cut it.

And what we have in the file system will somehow have to be mapped to
the name or signature of the style.  We currently use stuff like

 (lambda ()

This does not allow for babel.sty to be distinguished from babel.dtx.
