Umm, I think you misunderstood me.  I was trying to explain the
problem you're talking about, i.e. why 'emacsen' exists instead of
just having all the flavors provide 'emacs'.  The scenario I gave was
a sort of "what would break if there was no 'emacsen'" thing...

Personally, I have no problems with the current emacs setup... I think
it's quite a nice idea, actually, and yet another nice little feature
Debian has to set it apart from the rest of the pack :)
