Actually, no.  What I was saying is that several use-package features
are only useful if a package is poorly packaged.

In the mean time, it became apparent that the reason for that is that
I assume people (will) use ELPA to install their packages, whereas
use-package was designed for the case where packages are installed some
other way.

Hence use-package partly overlaps with ELPA, and in those parts that
overlaps, the work is done differently: in ELPA the work is done by the
packager, whereas in use-package the work is done by the end-user (since
there's no packager doing that work for him).
