Yes, indeed, I totally understand this rationale.  The 2.0 is very
well redesigned in terms of extensibility; thanks a lot for your
effort.  Still, I believe it would be to the benefit of the majority
to give `req-package' a shot and seek to add it as an optional
functionality to `use-package' while relying on the existing 2.0
