Well, it's all relative.  Compared to GNU Emacs
the development of XEmacs is actually pretty rapid.  Look at the release 
dates of GNU Emacs vs. XEmacs.  You will see that
GNU has some fairly wide canyons in there.

By the way, I know I just fell into the trap myself.  But, let's keep 
GNU Emacs vs. XEmacs discussions off of this list.  They are 
entertaining, but they have nothing to do with ESS since it supports both.

Therefore, let's isolate the bug rather than encourage people to
simply switch.  What happens if a GNU Emacs bug pops up?  Should
we tell them to switch to XEmacs then?  It's tempting, but fruitless.
