You didn't read what I was saying: auctex Depends on p-l-s.
Preview-latex-style is *not*at*all* usefull for a user of Emacs, unless
they have auctex installed.

David is the author of preview-latex-style and the current maintainer of
auctex.  You'd better believe him. Maybe the README can be worded better
(is there a Project Smith for GNU projects?), I didn't check.  But even
your wording "primarily intended" implies that it has other uses.

I didn't want to imply anything like this.  We already have

Package: auctex
Depends: preview-latex-style

and that's it.
