But GNU emacs has toolbars too and, e.g. "VM" the E-mail system
we are using has its own toolbar both for GNU emacs and Xemacs.

I agree that I'd like to make this work on both ASAP, but also
agree that we should add John's Xemacs-only code for now, and
then we (ESS-core mainly) learn from VM how to do toolbars that
work both on GNU and Xemacs.
