1) What do you think about the idea of adding something like a
   "DESDTDIR" to the generated emacsen-common scripts, then running the
   generated emacsen-install file with DESTDIR=/tmp/something. That
   would be slightly risky in the sense that every time we touch
   maintainer scripts there is the potential for user suffering.

2) Should this be done by dh_elpa_test, or by dh_elpa? I can imagine
   that we might disable upstream test suites but still want to run the
   byte compilation.
