Jens, you're of course right. The fact that emacs-common is a
subpackage of emacs didn't come up during the discussions a year ago.
I did try for "emacsen" but people didn't like that so much, am not
sure why.

Anyway, I'm happy to revisit the package naming guidelines for
(X)Emacs add-ons, Jens seems inclined to do so. Does anyone else have
strong feelings either way?
