I think at the time I did it, it was just less work to write it from
scratch.  syntax-ppss isn't a well encapsulated system, and it almost
requires its users to read its source code to see exactly what it does.
Also, c-parse-state (in effect) changes the syntax table in use by
setting category properties.  At the time, I was considering actually
changing the syntax table (for reasons I'm not entirely clear about any
more).  Does syntax-ppss exist in XEmacs, and if so, since when?  Some of
syntax-ppss's supporting infrastructure only came into existence after
syntax-ppss itself.

Ah.  That sounds like a good reason to change my new code to use
syntax-ppss.  :-(  But not before the first pretest release next week.
