Ok, it seems that currently the best way would be to change
/usr/share/apport/general-hooks/, since apport (currently) does
not seem to provide better integration for postinst failiures. That file
contains special handling for grub, grub2, initramfs, and kernel
packages, so I guess adding emacsen to that list is the way to go.

Thanks for the hint!
