  I have changed my mind after reception of #398761 and #398858.

  Indeed, emacs is more than just a text editor. An emacs without elisp
interpretation is not really an emacs. If people need emacs, they will
install emacs and if they need a lighter emacs, they will search one and
find and use zile or other similar editors.

  So I removed the emacs alternative in zile 2.2.22-3 (just uploaded).

  Robert, fill free to reopen #387164 if you are not convinced. But I
do not intend to change my mind again, at least, not before etch
release.
