RE: emacspeakwin installer - byte compiling



+1 to make it backwards compatible.  Always a good practice as long as you don't take it too far.  If you foresee hourse and hours and hours, then you may need to refrain but, if the effort isn't too great, I say do it.  It may pay dividends in future you don't even realize today.

Subject: emacspeakwin installer - byte compiling

Thinking more about the thing with cl-proclaim. This message is something that was coming and going during my attempts. Alastair helped me to understand it.

So it seems that byte-compiling during the installation would increase portability. I don't want to force a very specific Emacs version. Installer has access to Emacs. It could run compiling commands.

Do you think it's worth doing?
