Richard, please tell me what's wrong with using eval-after-load.

I've been trying to get an answer to this question in post after post
after post, and all replies have been evasive.  Everybody else has been
writing as though it were perfectly obvious and uncontrovertible that
eval-after-load is bad.  It's anything but obvious to me.

If you don't want to give me an answer, for whatever reason, please tell
me explicitly.  That would be OK too.
