Icky :-(  I can't think of a way to make them more robust, though.

I'd be inclined to make a subpackage for the vim syntax files.  The
emacs trigger scripts are reasonably understandable and work over a wide
range of emacs versions (I haven't gone back far enough to find a RHL
release on which they won't work.)  If upstream vim keeps up their
release pace, the vim trigger scripts will be broken within two years.

Additionally, the %ghost trick used for both vim and emacs cleanup will
cause double ownership of directories which spot says is not just
deprecated but a blocker.
