I believe there are ways we can integrate the development, while allow the
feature work to proceed separately. This is partly why I re-designed
use-package in 2.0: so new functionality would not require maintenance (by me)
in core, since others rely on features that I never use, and hence would never
test.

So I'd love to examine whether req-package and use-package can be integrated,
such that we each work on our respective parts, while users can benefit from
both.
