Well I don't plan to do anything at all.
At times though I have been thinking about whether a source code based
package system would make sence. Things that spring to my mind are:
- doing the byte compilation locally so that the right byte code is
generated naturally. The same Emacs used for running the package is
also used for compiling it.
- the build would handle Emacs properties like mule or nonmule
depending on what version of Emacs is used for the build.
- at the same time construct the package system to handle
dependencies properly between packages, including dependencies to
the Emacs binary.
- support for third party packages.
