Oh, I was told that when you upgrade, you are supposed to upgrade
everything, and therefore it does not matter if, for example, installing
libc6 in a bo system breaks the old emacs completely.
Would not have been easier to keep the name "emacs" for emacs19, but
allowing other packages also to provide "emacs"?
This way dselect would upgrade emacs to the version in hamm, which in
turn depends on emacsen-common, and everything would work.
