Minimal dependencies is a laudable goal. It bites me every now and then too,
ie you usually need Suggests at Travis etc pp.

But then here it really seems they belong together.  You could even try to
add a working example or two -- maybe even in inst/examples/ or something if
you don't want R CMD ... to force your hand.  Or use a non-code vignette.
Or, if you can bear it ;-), make it a full example.

Just some ideas.  It is nice that you wrapped this up.  Header-only packages
are quite useful.
