[Fedora-packaging] Packaging emacs modes: EL/F compatibility

When packaging a package that contains Emacs mode files, should the
Emacs subpackage require emacs(bin) or emacs? emacs(bin) seems to be
commonly used, but this is not provided by RedHat/Fedora Emacs
packages until version 22; RHEL 5.2 is still on 21.4 and thus EPEL
packages would have to be specially handled.

So the question is: is it better to use an %ifdef for non-Fedora
releases or to just depend on emacs?
