I don't have the file around anymore, but in the last debian-changes
announcement for xemacs, the maintainter noted that he had a problem
with the installation of info files that both emacs and xemacs provide.
He couldn't get xemacs to not overwrite the emacs-provided ones, and so
had to list the packages as conflicting for now, though he was very
unhappy about that. I haven't downloaded the xemacs package, so I don't
know if this is mentioned anywhere within.
