Emacs 20 does not seem to be in any of the active Debian distributions
(even oldstable) according to packages.debian.org.  emacs22 currently
appears only in experimental.  I don't know what version is planned as a
default for the next release.

So it seems safe to assume that Debian users don't need emacs20 support.
