Minor but annoying point.  It seems like in F9 there is no 'emacs' command.
Instead I have to type (or tab-complete / alias / etc.) 'emacs-22.1.50'.

Any reason for this or just a mistake?

um ...F9?  in any event, on my F8 system, there *is* an F8 file
/usr/bin/emacs, but it's a symlink:

Well OK, F8-devel = F9.

$ ls -l /usr/bin/emacs
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 2007-11-11 04:52 /usr/bin/emacs -> /etc/alternatives/emacs

you might want to run

  $ alternatives --config emacs

and see if you're somehow missing that setup step.

# /usr/sbin/alternatives --config emacs

There are 2 programs which provide 'emacs'.

  Selection    Command
*+ 1           /usr/bin/emacs-22.1
   2           /usr/bin/emacs-22.1.50

Enter to keep the current selection[+], or type selection number: 1
# emacs
bash: emacs: command not found
