I'm not trying to be confrontational. It might seem like the
executable is a stupid example, but it's actually important. So bear

Sure. But some site-start.d files only set up autoloads and things
like that, so that the programs can be executed by users, later, under
user control. It's those site-start.d files that I'm talking about.
Those site-start.d files are only things that make the program (which
resides elsewhere) runnable by emacs users. Putting those things
there is exactly parallel to putting a binary in /bin: it changes what
commands are otherwise available, but doesn't do anything else.
Still, setting this up has to be done somewhere, and it's done by
running small simple lisp commands.
