Ok thanks, that clarifies the status quo.

I still think the emacs-common prefix is confusing with the emacs-common 
package but I should have made that comment a year ago I guess. ;-) 
There are alternative prefix's (elisp or emacsen) that could be (have 
been) used but perhaps it is too late now?  IMHO it would be better to 
avoid hyphened prefixes in package naming afap possible in the future.
