As for byte-compiling, it is my understanding that .elc files are  
binary compatible in recent versions (21/22).

Of course it's possible that the installer does something else - like  
identify whether it is supposed to run in Aquamacs or Emacs, or  
identify some paths.  But that's why the ~/Library.. path is specified  
separately.  So I don't see a problem in most cases.
