FWIW, I agree.  XEmacs's C implementation should not be used as an
excuse to go backwards here.

In fact (Richard, would you please confirm?) it may be a good idea to
use the Lisp implementation as a base to avoid legal issues if it
looks "too much like" XEmacs code (the problem is that AFAIK you have
looked at the XEmacs code, so couldn't swear that it's not an
unintentional copy of someone else's code).
