I must say that I find it far from obvious that it's unwieldy.

> I have these all configured using the "use-package" macro,

By that do you mean that you first go through the trouble of disabling
the normal automatic setup done by ELPA packages, and then setup
use-package for each and every one of those packages, partly redoing by
hand what the ELPA package's normal setup would have done for you?

Auto-installing a list of packages seems mostly unrelated to whether
(and how) you configure them, tho.

Sounds like a problem with use-package.

FWIW, this should be the case for *all* ELPA packages.
