Please remember: The debian bug tracker is the prime place to report bugs in emacs packages. Keeping this list current is much easier if you add these infos:
The init files of the external packages should not, by default (or through an option), be loaded at startup, unless the user (or the administrator) declares (require ‘external-packages-inits) or requires packages or their init files individually.
Most debian packages that contain add on el files that would be installed site wide actually already do this.
If a specific package installs itself site wide, and you later decide that this is not what you want, you can always remove the offending file from /etc/emacs/site-start.d/ This change is sancrosant, and a Debian package will not later reinstall this file. (If it does, please file an RC bug using reportbug with Severity: serious)
If you want to install a bleeding-edge version of Emacs direct from Bazaar, or build it from source for any other reason, and still integrate with Debian, so your version of Emacs can act as a dependency, a handy script and Debian package by Michael Olson are available at https://github.com/rrthomas/src-emacs-on-debian
