Sorry, just came to me that you could symlink /usr/bin/jemacs to point
to your script, and leave the alternatives system intact. Your script
would then call a symlink called "jemacs" (placed in your ~/, for
instance), which would point to joe.
editor -(ln)-> jemacs -(ln)-> myscript -(call)-> ~/jemacs -(ln)-> joe.
Just re-link /usr/bin/jemacs whenever you upgrade the joe package.
