Note that emacs24 has a very annoying regression: bug 680933.
There is a patch, which works well for me. If emacs24 goes to
Wheezy, it should include this patch.

emacs23 doesn't have RC issues, but bug 608417 is close to one. This
bug is worse that I expected in the first place. I got corrupted files
several times without noticing the problem because of this bug. And
it is fixed in emacs24.
