Since el-get sits kind of on top of elpa, and the emacs24-starter-kit
uses elpa for package management, my original idea was to do everthing
(possible) in el-get and use elpa or downloading sources to the /src
directory of the starter-kit only if necesary.

Then I installed ess, magit and emacs-goodies-el with el-get, but the
autoloads didn't work. The files were downloaded like some other
libraries, but there was either no mentioning at all or only
outcommented lines in the autoload file, and the system did not know
anything about ess or magit. So I installed them from elpa (magit) or or
put symlinks from
/el-get/el-get/ to /emacs24-starter-kit/src/ and load them explicitly
Now my set-up is to use elpa for everything, el-get for the rest, and
just download the library if both fail.
