Good question. I never thought of that. Most lines of elisp
code are calls to Emacs functions or builtin which have to be
loaded. You can't use the elisp code independently of Emacs.
You could look at Emacs' elisp files as libraries that happened
to be GPL'ed and not LGPL'ed.
Raul, why are you so quick to dismiss this? You state it like it
was a matter of fact. Is this documented anywhere?
