#/etc/postinstall/emacro.sh copies /etc/skel/.emacs &
/etc/skel/emacs/**/* to $HOME
What happens if there's more than one user?
Personally, I think that the /etc/skel/.emacs and
/etc/skel/emacs/**/* should be /etc/defaults/etc/skel/.emacs
and /etc/defaults/etc/emacs/**/* respectively and
/etc/postinstall/emacro.sh should copy them, if they
don't already exist, to /etc/skel/...
It *should* *not* install them to $HOME. Skel files
are copied there by /etc/profile when a new user
logs in for the first time. If an existing user
wants them then it should be up to them to copy as
