Actually, it doesn't really break it.  All it does really (assuming you
don't use the new early-init.el file) is that packages in
~/.emacs.d/elpa will be automatically activated before ~/.emacs
is loaded.

So if you set package-user-dir in your ~/.emacs presumably you don't
have any packages in ~/.emacs.d/elpa and hence it won't make much of
a difference: you can still set package-user-dir in your ~/.emacs and
then call package-initialize.
