Same error's in the postinst, which is where I hit it. (on
-2, BTW) -2 is where the emacsen-common dependancy was added,
but -1 is where the error appeared. Adding the dependancy was
to fix this problem...

Depending on how -3 fixes the problem, the new package's
script may or may not be more successful than the old package's.

Of course Pacman didn't influence us as kids. If it did,

listening to repetitive music.
