Ben, please don't assume that your messages are ignored just because
no one replied.  I, for one, am reading each of your messages very
carefully and take anything you say into consideration.  We are all
busy people, so acking each message to which we agree is not something
we can afford.  At least I can't; I don't want to speak for others,
but I suspect many have to cope with a similar lack of time.

I also don't think there's any resistance to run XEmacs.  Stefan
already told you that he does, and so do I.  No doubt there are

Sure.  But it's also reasonable to ask the expert(s) instead, as an
expert could provide a more accurate information faster.  For example,
if someone--on any of the two teams--is interested in the details of
somee code I wrote, I wouldn't mind if they asked me.

I agree completely.
