Emacs meta-packages

The fine folks at Ubuntu have added a new `emacs-meta' source package to
their distribution which provides empty binary packages `emacs' and
`emacs-nox' that just depend on emacs21 and emacs21-nox:

    <URL: ftp://ftp.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/e/emacs-meta/>

It allows newbies to just `apt-get install emacs', sparing them the need
to search for a specific flavor.

I think Debian should have something similar, perhaps in emacsen-common.
