  I am using the packages from http://people.redhat.com/petersen/emacs 
without any problems.

  Actually it has been a pleasant surprise as it works, it looks nice, 
etc...

  I don't notice any difference in the startup time from the previous 
frontend.

  I also feel a little bit guilty since I should have reported this directly 
to the packager but since it works there isn't nothing to complain... ;-)
