This is no longer a theoretical argument: use-package is now shortly
described in both core manuals as I thought it should be, with a
cross-reference to the full manual that came with use-package.  So
please review what's in the manuals now, and if you have concrete
suggestions for changes or improvements, please post such specific
suggestions wrt the existing text in the manuals.
