Thats fair, but (in case its not clear), Im suggesting that we try
to move everyone away from ever saying Add this line to .emacs:
(require, and *instead* get them to say the very similar Add this
line to .emacs: (use-package.
The hope (unsupported by actual evidence, of course) is that its a
simple enough change that its not as difficult as telling people
how to find the right point in their init file to put package-initialize
w.r.t. the various `require lines, which move around. As an additional
benefit, emacs will start faster, and the users init file will
naturally tell them where to customize that package. (In a potential
future, we could even have customize or a replacement add the options
to the use-package statement directly - but thats down the road).
Agreed. My hope was to get people to suggest an equally-simple but
better alternative to `require in .emacs (which is already something
that wed like to avoid).
Hope that helps. Sorry to add to the noise if not. Thanks!
