Who cares?  The point is that if the user asks to load foo.el.old, we
should consider load-file-rep-suffixes, whereas for "foo" we shouldn't.
I'm not particularly worried about finding files with name "foo.el.old.el".
Do you mean we need this shortcut due to some performance considerations? I am not sure why else we would want a partial solution when we can have a complete one. In my opinion we should only consider load-file-rep-suffixes if the name matches \\.elc?\\' (the difference is the end of string marker), so foo.el and foo.el.old.el are both ok to extend with .gz, but foo.el.old and foo shouldn't be extended. Am I missing something?

I don't want to hardcode "gz" here.  We have load-file-rep-suffixes for that.

Yes, you are right, .gz shouldn't be hardcoded. Though I am not sure if allowing anything there is ok. Maybe we can just use (sring-match (concat "\\.elc?\\(" (regexp_opt load-file-rep-suffixes) "\\)\\'") library)?

If you only use (get-load-suffixes) that will fail when we (load "~/.gnus").
My check for absolute-file-name-p was not an optimization.

Got it.
