Interesting. I find it astonishing that anyone would insist on using
such an old version. Are your customisations so incompatible with newer
Emacs? The call of the daemon and anti aliased fonts would be enough to
move for most .. Or do you just have an intransigent BOFH?

rest just seemed minor trivialities totally offset by being on a modern
version.
