I think it would be good to aim for Emacs-28 being distributed with all
*its* .el files as well as the Elisp files it generates using
`lexical-binding:t`.  That's why I'm in favor of adding this cookie to
the autoload files now.

So we should first make sure we use `lexical-binding:t` everywhere.
Fine by me,
