I believe any interference could be reasonable considered a bug (since
presumably this will morph fairly seamlessly into emacs22 once it has
been sprinkled with holy gnu pee, which people seem confident will
happen sometime before etch is released :).

I have both the gtk version and emacs21 installed on my laptop and
have had no problems---though, honestly, I'm considering uninstalling
emacs21 just to save a little space and because it's not being used.
