Re: Let `package-install-selected-packages' install packages without ask

On a related note, I use “(package-install 'X)” in my Emacs configuration files which spits out “‘X’ is already installed” for every package on launch. It is no big deal, but it would be great if Emacs included “package-install-if-needed” or perhaps some argument on “package-install” to stay quiet if no work is necessary. Clearly, “(unless (package-installed-p X) (package-install X))” is a common pattern.
