I upgraded to GNU Emacs 24.3.1, and learned a few
things. First, all hell did *not* break loose: so far,
the only thing that happened was that the face
"modeline" had disappeared (easy enough to replace by
mode-line), *and* I had to re-install w3m-el-snapshot
(very easy with aptitude). Also... on Debian, Emacs
seems to be /usr/bin/emacs (with "where" in zsh, or
"type" in bash), and that is a link to
/etc/alternatives/emacs, which in turn is a link to
/usr/bin/emacs24-x (after the upgrade). So there is
still a /usr/bin/emacs23-x if it blows up in your
face. I thought I'd mention this so as not to spread
disinformation and discourage people to upgrade.
