I hope I'm not mistaken, but I think that all that Debian does is to
distribute a pre-built site-start.el file.  Does including a
site-start.el file imply that the Emacs distribution is `hacked up'?

Suppose a user installs AUC-TeX or a new Gnus version in addition to
their Emacs, then Debian makes it so that the package is used
automatically, by including the right incantations in the
site-start.el file.  I don't feel that this is a bad thing.
