Bug#20776: dpkg-dev does not use emacsen-commen method of installing .el files

If the bug is that the files are not loaded correctly: my tree puts
50dpkg-dev.el in /etc/emacs/site-start.d, which from the bug report I
and from the Debian Emacsen policy I have (from emacsen-common 1.4.8) is
supposed to be loaded by every Emacs.

Alternatively, if the bug is that the files aren't byte-compiled:

I don't think this is a bug.  In particular, I think the extra hassle,
unreliability and time consumed when installing/upgrading dpkg-dev
and/or emacs packages far outweigh any benefit to be gained from
having this file byte-compiled.

(I agree that this would seem to apply to nearly any .el-containing

Furthermore, the Debian Emacsen Policy doesn't seem to require files
like this to be byte-compiled.

Given this, does the submitter agree that there is no bug here any
more at least in my tree ?
