Of course I test building of the packages using mock. 

However, I can't test *installation* on all platforms, as I simply don't have
access to them all. What you're proposing relies upon elisp compilation at
install time, not package build time. Mock goes a long way to testing package
building, but not package installation.

The elisp api is well understood to be inconsistent between flavours, and
unstable between versions within a flavour. This isn't a problem, as packages
get updated as the api changes. But, your proposal would have packages
automatically triggered to be byte compiled for all emacs versions as they're
installed, irrespective of whether the package has been updated for the relevant
api... this will inevitably lead to broken packages installed on users machines,
UNLESS there is a way to control what versions of emacs the package is byte
compiled for on installation/triggering. That may be possible?
