Yes, if one entity depends on another entity, while
that depends on the first, I can't see any other way
than making more, smaller entities.

And as this is so easy, why consider something else?

Aside from solving the problem you get a better, more
modular design with neater program units which will
benefit you (the OP) in other situations as well.

By the way, you (the OP) said "this is a library
question, not an init file question" (pseudo-quote) -
but what is the difference? If an init makes available
a bunch of Elisp functions for a specific purpose, how
is that not a library?
