FWIW, lots of use-package is designed to work around flaws in packages.

E.g. the :load-path thingy should never be necessary since the package's
own autoloads should already take care of that.

Or to take another example from

   (use-package foo
     (setq foo-variable t)
     (foo-mode 1))

For any properly written foo-mode, the above can be replaced with

     (setq foo-variable t)
     (foo-mode 1)

and it should work just as well.

IOW, in many cases, it would be better for people to report the problem
as a bug rather than to reach for use-package.
