Right, but for what it's worth, the Debian infrastructure is already set
up to, and would, maintain separate .eln files/trees for those two
cases, *if* we ever re-versioned the emacs packages.

Right now, there's only one GNU Emacs flavor in debian, we don't provide
versioned packages/flavors like emacs27 and emacs28 anymore.  Though we
could return to that again if it were ever deemed sufficiently valuable
to people.
