I would agree that org should be a package in elpa and not bundled into
emacs core. The user can then choose which version to install (ignoring the
package dependency problem). This won't fix all the issues as anyone
installing a new major version when an existing version is already loaded
will run into the same problems. Bottom line, as org stands now, upgrading
when org is already loaded is problematic.
