How would one create a recipe with emacs -Q when one is interested in
package updates?  I guess one would rather use emacs -q in a testuser
account with no ~/.emacs.

I think what one has to do would create fake packages

  use-macro-1.0 requires macro-1.0

and install use-macro-1.0, macro-1.0 as a dependency.  Then make a
breaking change in macro leading to macro-2.0 required by use-macro-2.0
which will error if use-macro-2.0 was compiled with macro-1.0 instead of
