Changing default emacs to 25 to allow emacs24 removal -- RoM

Package: release.debian.org

We want to remove emacs24 from stretch, and we think we've managed to
fix all of the affected packages[1].  We're consulting you because we
thought this might be considered a transition, though perhaps a minor
one relative to others.

At this point, we believe we only need to upload a version of
emacs-defaults that switches the emacs and emacs-nox metapackages from
24 to 25.

Would that be acceptable?  If so, we'll upload, and then file the
ftp.debian.org RM emacs24 bug.

According to "dak rm -Rn emacs24", the emacs and emacs-nox metapackages
are indeed the only broken depends.
