Then I'm lost here: it is absolutely not clear for me where the border
between libraries and end-user applications lies in the Emacs world.
Such things as "emacs-dash" or "emacs-s" are definitely libraries but
most of the other Emacs packages are intended for users but we still
prefix them ("emacs-auctex", "emacs-pdf-tools", etc.)
