Hrm.  OK.  I guess I've just gotten too used to RPM-like systems where
even e.g. building a tarball is a "make install" into a dummy tree which
then gets packed up verbatim.  I don't see modifying a path in run-help
as that much different from skipping the installation of Completion/Cygwin
on a Darwin host [which admittedly we currently do not have a simple
option to accomplish].

} We could have a parallel hierarchy Functions_pre for generated functions.

Do we really expect there to be very many of these?  We've gone twenty
years without having a single one of them until now.  Is an entire
parallel hierarchy necessary?  Completion_pre as well?
