That will be a significant help, actually. I presume that any build
would be missing bundled packages? For me, this would not be a hassle
because I'll just set it up so they install from ELPA on first use.

It would still break my windows packaging scripts which use worktrees,
(or as it stands the windows distribution will miss ada-mode) but I
guess that only affects me. We are some way of Emacs-28, though, so now
is a good time to break things. I would hope that big packages (org!!!)
is not going to move for a while.

Also, some research suggests that the git developers are slowing
working out how to fix the module/worktree breakage, so who knows they
might have fixed it by then.

It's fine with me!
