I have the emacs package (i.e. GNU emacs) installed. If I try to
select the xemacs package with dselect, I am told that there is a
dependency conflict and I must remove emacs, w3, vm and several other
packages to install xemacs.  At least at the level of Debian packages
they still appear to conflict.
