And I'm not sure whether I should oppose it.  This is a slippery
slope, because someone at some point has got to raise a brow and
decide this is some mistake or left-over from some distant past, and
remove it.  It will be a maintenance burden, albeit a minor one.  Why
not turn the table and claim that use-package has a bug?  Preloaded
packages are all in load-history, no?

Stefan, John, any comments/thoughts?
