Fine with me, but would very much welcome a co-maintaniner, hint hint :).

Yes - actually the best way of dealing with this IMO is to add an init file to
site-lisp/site-start.d which does a (requires 'bbdb-autoloads) - that's what
most packages do, and is the spirit of the guidelines - have updated the spec
file to create such a file. Is this ok with you?

As I say above - I would prefer to leave bbdb-autoloads in the site-lisp/bbdb
directory, and add a file to site-lisp/site-start.d which requires bbdb-autolods

person has taken over upstream leadership of both packages, so I will begin a
campaign with him to change this situation :) He is away until the end of
