I agree with you not to further discuss the choices between these two
variants. But I'd like to point out the following as my last post to
this subject.

1. #Emacs channel has 1130 users while #XEmacs has 24;
2. the Emacs development branch commits 100 times more than XEmacs since 2005;
3. XEmacs's release packs much fewer features than Emacs. XEmacs just
   released a new development version, if you like you can compare it to
   Emacs 23.0.94 and be shocked.

I think it is objective to say Emacs feature set is a super set of
XEmacs and that's why I'm recommending it to new users.
