Maybe you want to fix them so they don't test for (featurep 'xemacs) but for
something more specific.  But AFAIK when the code was moved from the URL
project's CVS repository to the Emacs project's CVS repository, the code
worked on XEmacs as well.  And it hasn't been changed much since, so it
should either still work under XEmacs, or be close to working.  I see no
reason to remove the XEmacs support.

But maybe we should check with the XEmacs guys: if they have their own
version of the URL package, maybe we want to try and resync them, or we may
decide to drop XEmacs support from our version.

In either case, the byte-compiler of Emacs knows that (featurep 'xemacs)
returns nil, so the tests you want to remove from the source code are
already removed during byte-compilation.
