Unfortunately RHEL's emacs / emacs-nox do not seem to provide
emacs(bin), so in that case, since RPM does not allow for either-or
dependencies, what would the best solution be?
1. Requires: emacs and disenfranchise emacs-nox users
2. Requires: /usr/bin/emacs and draw the ire of yum users having to
3. Get RHEL to fix its packages? 4.x/5.x are still under support and
could get updates.
