That is right.  I am not going to demotivate you.  I have added
the two files ( and src/ just now.

From your past mail:

I think we don't need PATH_SCMDUMPLOADSEARCH.

| 6. Load (emacs init) from lisp/startup.el.

I agree with this.  Maybe we don't need to load ~/.emacs.scm
in lisp/startup.el.

A list of functions/features might be helpful.  Not necessary to
be written precisely because they will possibly change soon.
