Thanks Grant

Can you share (the relevant pieces of) your init??

I tried use-package
Then found req-package via looking for recipes for use-package.
Which seems/claims to have to have superceded use-package.
Except that it has 'recursion' problems...
Viz. req-package requires dash, log4e
So one has either
- handle it outside the package system
- do it once by hand and then point to the
  And expect it will break when the version-numbers change

Personally I can handle this
However for my completely beginner students this would just add to the 
overwhelming nature of emacs
So for now I think I put aside req-package and stick to use-package
[And would appreciate tips]
