bug#16441: 24.3; package-install js2-mode doesn't put a ' before the key

Subject: bug#16441: 24.3; package-install js2-mode doesn't put a ' before the keywords list

User-agent: Notmuch/0.16 (http://notmuchmail.org) Emacs/24.3.1 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu)

This bug report will be sent to the Bug-GNU-Emacs mailing list
and the GNU bug tracker at debbugs.gnu.org.  Please check that
the From: line contains a valid email address.  After a delay of up
to one day, you should receive an acknowledgment at that address.

Please write in English if possible, as the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators for other languages.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug, and
the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give a recipe
starting from `emacs -Q':

M-x package-install RET js2-mode RET


js2-mode-pkg.el:2:1:Warning: `"languages"' is a malformed function

after creating this js2-mode-pkg.el:

;; Generated package description from js2-mode.el
(define-package "js2-mode" "20140114" "Improved JavaScript editing mode" 
'((emacs "24.1")) :url "https://github.com/mooz/js2-mode/"; :keywords 
("languages" "javascript"))

which e.g. leads to errors on next emacs startup. Adding a ' before the
keywords list (and deleting the .elc) is a workaround. I don't see the
error in js2-mode.el that would cause this:

$ head -13 js2-mode.el

;; Version: 20140114
;; Keywords: languages, javascript
;; Package-Requires: ((emacs "24.1"))

but in any case, 'package should probably handle this better.
