I've updated the helper tool [2] and my sample package-in-progress [3]
to do byte compilation based on the existing emacsen-common
infrastructure. This is transparent to the user except needing a
runtime-dependence on emacsen-common so that the "generated" maintainer
scripts can run. I say "generated" because really they are just copied
from template files installed by the dh-elpa package. In special
circumstances (e.g. the dh-elpa package itself) where byte-compilation
is not worthwhile, it can be disabled by passing a flag to dh_elpa.
