Sorry, it is https://github.com/jwiegley/use-package and supposed to
help with startup times :).

Yes, still 26 seconds by doing only that change.

Yes, it does. I had a use-package equivalent for that but when changing
to require then it took more than 20 seconds.

I guess then it doesn't have to do with w3m-search specifically.

Yes. I mean, there are .elc versions of all .el files in the w3m
directory which I guess means they have been byte-compiled.

Ok, I wonder if I managed to compile just one unfortunate commit?
Probably not.
