It's not like we would not have this option with AUCTeX if we really
wanted to.

A valid point on Windows.

IIRC, Miles posted some installer tool written in Elisp on
emacs-devel, something to which Richard said "if a package system
would look like that, I would not object to it".  Something left to
for after the release IIRC.

It would probably make a lot of sense, if we wanted to go the route of
Elisp-based installation, to start there.
