I wonder if decoupling more of the standard library isn't a good idea,
although it flies in the face of "batteries included". One thing I
like about XEmacs's model is that I kind of get both for little
effort. I want all the latest packages, but I don't want to
re-install XEmacs to get them. So I use the package manager, which
isn't exactly one-click-updates, but it's pretty simple to use.
We'd still have to deal with incompatibilities in core modules, and in
the language spec, but those probably require different tools.
