Hi Tassilo,

Exactly in this regard, use-package's documentation mention a feature
to load a feature with a different name from the package and uses
AUCTeX as an example.  And since AUCTeX never used a `require' to work
(this is actually harmful sometimes), I expected that use-package has
been tested for AUCTeX as well.

Thanks for your comments!

So, Stefan, how we could catch if someone is loading AUCTeX in the "wrong" way?
