No. It is that strange. The download I took *is* a standalone
package. You have said "why it is broken" rather than justify it not
being corrected. I'm not necessarily criticising, just pointing out that
the effort to replace the package file is very small and would enable a
few people to "just install and use it" rather than have a totally broken
emacs.

It's a neat little package btw!
