Why on earth would that make devscripts depend on emacs? You're saying
that the mere existence of a elisp file in a package makes all the
rest of the package suddenly stop working? No, of course not. Surely
"Suggests: emacs" would be (more than) enough.

(Not that I care where it ends up, but making a seperate package for it
seems like major overkill.)
