I don't know if this got purposely resent on the 6th, but I'll
chime in now and say that I think this isn't a good idea at all.
I think you should be able to configure your editor yourself.  =)

However, if you *must* do this (I don't think you should at all,
but I'll stop short of a veto), I'd think it'd be a better idea 
to follow SVN's convention by adding this to all files:

/* -----------------------------------------------------------------
 * local variables:
 * eval: (load-file "../emacs-style")
 * end:

Where ../emacs-style is obviously the relative path to emacs-style.
This way we can change the global style by just modifying 
emacs-style rather than all files.  And, it allows some useful 
macros in emacs-style.

FWIW, I don't use emacs...  Go vi.  =)  -- justin
