This seems analogous to the management problem that one can have after
putting a lot of lambdas which all look alike inside a hook variable.
Maybe a similar solution is warranted.  I would rewrite your
`eval-after-load' blocks such that each of them calls one named function
(instead of an anonymous `progn'), which in turn contains all the stuff
to be done inside that `eval-after-load'.  That way, when something goes
wrong, the backtrace will name the offending function.

Best,
WGG
