Hi Sean,

:-) Well, that's just it, the experimental functionality (for example
MathML support) is part of the upstream tarball.  All muse-el packages
in archive install to: /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/muse-el/experimental

I've also considered the option of moving it to
doc/elpa-muse/examples/experimental, but I worry that would be burying

Is it still ok to move them to /usr/share/elpa-muse/lisp, as you
suggest?  I imagine this would also require that NEWS be updated, to
notify users that the load-path has changed from the old
