Q: make function from Developer` available in package

problem: I'm using the SparseLinearSolve-function from Developer-area
which I make available in all notebooks by putting 
<<Developer` 
in my init.m.

However, I need this function as well in a self-written Mathematica
package.
Thus I tried

BeginPackage["test`"];
Needs["Developer`"]
Begin[`Private`"]; 
...

and an error-message pops up:
"Needs::nocont : Context Developer` was not created when Needs was
evaluated"

Using 'Get' instead of 'Needs' there is no error message,
but: SparseLinearSolve is not available either inside the package.

My question: Why not?

Any advice is much appreciated.

My setup: Mathematica 4.0 (Windows NT)
