Bug#157123: project: modify emacs policy

i do see now what you are saying. This takes care of most of my
complaints. However, an important problem remains
 It seems that, by default, /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/foo/ don't
get added for most of the packages, whereas
/usr/share/emacs21/site-lisp/foo does get added. where foo
represents the package.
Some examples of The packages where the former directory did not get
added, for me are:
erc <-- this one, i am sure of... others are gleaned from lookign at
and all others...
the only exception which worked properly by default was:
html-helper-mode <--M-x find-functino worked here.
 IT is still not perfect to not have the .el files in the same
place as .elc, (i know some stuff depends on that), but that is a
minor issue, and i wil stop bugging you about that :)
Have a good day,
