So my suggestion becomes:
site.sl startup.el % not touched by Debian (?)
default.sl default.el % not used by Debian
jed.conf site-start.el % config file
* jed.conf has Debian specific code, site-start.el is (virtually) empty.
(Does the emacs package patch startup.el?) If so, is there a way to
disable Debian specific startup code in Emacs?
* As Jed doesnot have a VERSION system, there is no equivalent for
Pauls question was "what does Emacs do?", so now I ask more specific:
Does the Debian packaged emacs look for /usr/local/etc/site-start.el?
Does a locally installed emacs look for /etc/site-start.el?
