OK, I'll bite.  I have time to dedicate to this task; perhaps we can
move quickly enough for Emacs 29.  Ultimately, the decision will be with
the maintainers, but it seems to me that use-package.el itself is in
shape for inclusion.

Could you write up a summary of what needs doing before we can add
use-package to emacs.git?  Is it just a matter of writing up some more
documentation, or is there more that needs doing?

If we get it into core, we can make it into a :core package.
