Re: proposal to (maybe) use "elpa-" package prefix for emacs lisp packages

Nah, I think it's just a quirk of implementation. It looks for all
directories in load-path ending in "site-lisp", and adds /elpa underneath
that.  This could be maybe tweaked by tweaking the global load-path very
early in the intialization.

This part I'll have to think about more.
