Package: emacs23-nox
Version: 23.1+1-5
Severity: normal

When emacs23-common-non-dfsg isn't install emacs should report a more
useful error than "Info file emacs does not exist".

This could be done by installing a stub info page when
emacs23-common-non-dfsg isn't installed explaining why Debian doesn't
have Emacs's info page or by altering the error message Emacs displays
when it can't find info pages and the page being looked up eq emacs.
