I don't share Stefan's fears.  If the only issue with moving
use-package to core is that someone must step forward to take the
responsibility for maintaining it, I think we can move it into core
without fear.  I see no reason for making a dedicated maintainer for
use-package a prerequisite for importing it, given what John says
about its stability.  It's a non-issue.
