I think it is more logical than that: emacs-snapshot will always bring
breakages since it is meant to move all the time. Users need to have something
If users want to use ecb with emacs-snapshot, they need to test ecb with it
and ask the ecb maintainer to explicitely add the dependency.

Yes, I asked Emacs developers and they confirmed that.
