Unless someone has a compelling reason arguing against this, I'm going
to just change emacsen-policy to mandate that each emacsen should make
the version specific dir, i.e.
be a symlink to the flavor dir, i.e.
This seems simplest, doesn't present any serious problems that I can
see, and is certainly better than the current arrangement, but let me
know if you think I'm mistaken.
