If we use the same things what Debian does, we don't rely on the trigger at all,
which may mess up ;)

For the reference, http://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/debian-emacs-policy
especially see section 6.

emacsen-common provides a facility to do byte-compile for every flavor of
emacsen. What the elisp packages needs to do is, just to call
emacs-package-install/emacs-package-remove in %post/%postun. and
emacs-install/emacs-remove is for emacsen itself and to byte-compile all elisp
available on system. it's useful when additional emacsen is installed on system
and noone needs to install another package to use on it nor noone even needs to
build another subpackage for that.

So I don't think any packages need to do %ghost. packagers just needs to prepare
the install/remove script and put it under
/usr/lib/emacsen-common/packages/{install,remove}/, also just include all
necessary elisp packages in rpm. that's it. you will miss the feature that
queries the byte-compiled elisp files to rpm to know which package owns it
though, I don't think it's an issue.

For the compatibility, you can just exclude the incompatible flavor of emacsen
in install script. Debian packages ordinarily does it as needed.
