It should work, but of course you'll have the usual fun when deinstalling
it or upgrading. Of course deinstalling emacs will complain about
non-empty dirs too.

An alternative I see is putting the files somewhere else, and tell emacs
to look there. Dunno if that's possible, all my emacs extensions are in my
(tiny) .emacs ;-)
