	In editors/xemacs-packages we have a monster-package that provides
	all common packages for xemacs.  Since emacs and xemacs are not completely
	compatible, emacs can not use (all) of those.  It would be nice if we
	had a package 'emacs-packages' that provides the bulk of the packages
	that are available for emacs.  Currently, some of them exist as
	individual packages (such as ruby-mode, flim, apel, semi etc.).
	cd /usr/pkgsrc/editors
	[ -d emacs-packages ] || echo "Nope, still missing!"
	Take xemacs-packages and existing individual packages available for
	emacs and merge.
