Package: emacs
Severity: wishlist

It would be handy if there was a way to mark autoloads obsolete.
Then if the relevant function/variable is accessed without the
associated package being already loaded, a warning would be produced.
(Either from the byte-compiler or via display-warning at the end of
loading ~/.emacs.)
