Ah, yes, you have to run it to actually see that error.

Oh, use-package is great. It is not that it actually does that much
(although it does some stuff!), but that it allows (and in all honesty,
forces) you to group together all configuration. I used to do this with
multiple files that I loaded, but this works as better and is simpler.
Add in :ensure and the unison file sync tool, and you can move from
machine to machine, with identical set ups -- that's the way I use it.
Pretty much the only package that I do not use use-package for is
use-package, as it doesn't bootstrap!

If I can be allowed to add a plug, also worth taking a look at my own
lentic package. I know that some people are using this for their init
file. It allows you to use org without all that tangling business.
