Thanks Reiner!

It's slightly easier for me if changes are installed on the Gnus v5-10
branch, from where I can propagate them to Emacs CVS.

No, but it's only a few simple commands for changes that don't generate any
conflicts (I probably _could_ automate it fully in that case, but I actually
like staying in the loop a bit so that I can catch any unexpected weirdness).

I wouldn't worry about it; I think any such problems will be rare and small,
and easily enough fixed after the fact if they escape the casual checking I
do during merges.

I don't really think there's a problem with having a bit of XEmacs-specific
code in Emacs anyway if it makes maintaining Gnus much easier; again, if
something does become an issue, it can be addressed at that point.
