Are you byte-compiling this elisp?
AFAIK, you need to depend on emacs itself (and not emacs-common) if you
byte-compile it. I _think_ stuff can break if you don't, but I'm vague
on why. Search the debian-emacsen archives. I split off a package
because of that issue a while back, but the seperate -el package is 62KB.
If the above is correct, then you may bundle your .el file with the main
package without depending on Emacs providing that you don't bye-compile
it. If it's 4K, it's presumably a very small elisp file anyway.
