I have taken a look again, and it appears I was mistaken.  That being
said, there are still a few places where I think it is not clear if
talking about the macro or the package would be correct.  E.g. compare
these two excerpts that refer to use package and a keyword:

                                                  With use-package, you
  can simplify this using the @code{:bind} keyword, as described in this


  @code{use-package} supports this with a @code{:map} modifier,
  taking the local keymap to bind to:

Both readings make sense, but the manual is talking about two different
things (to be fair: with a major overlap).

Nevermind this, I see that there is only a single instance of
"@file{use-package}" left now, and it makes sense (it refers to the file
being loaded).
