Because I want to be able to unpack a windows distribution and run the

OK, but then, as long as it's w32-specific, it should go into
w32fns.el or something.

Okay. I will add lisp/w32-feature.el (I don't want to add it to w32-fns.el as this would force loading of ert). I won't add a command so that no one will run it by mistake, but will add an autoloaded function.

OTOH, if we want this as a general-purpose feature (along the lines
proposed by Stefan), then yes, something like lisp/feature.el should
be appropriate.

That might be useful for others who maintain binary distributions of Emacs, but I don't know what they would need or want. So, I'll add w32-feature.el to Emacs-27. If we need something more generic, I'd be happy to migrate to that.
