IIUC, a copy of the file is installed with the data-directory (etc/)
anyway? So the file will be available to the user, even if not
installed in the pkgconfig location.
Alternatively, if there is users' demand for it, we (Gentoo) could
add the unit to another package (like app-emacs/emacs-common-gentoo
which contains the desktop files, or app-emacs/emacs-daemon). We try
to keep the number of files installed such at a minimum, though, and
follow upstream's install locations whereever possible.
