Re: Provides: emacsen ?
I have a fourth option. Use the Depends: mechanism to make
dpkg do the right thing on individual add-on installs (like, if your
package strictly depends on another). However, internally,
emacsen-common goes the extra mile.

The emacs-install script could then do something like menu
does, wait in the background for dpkg to finish, so that all
add-ons to be installed in this run are done, and then look at the
files above to figure out the emacsen-compile order.
The files added by each package can be a superset of the
dependencies specified, so they may also take into account ``soft''
