Well, I was partly weaseling.  It had escaped my mind that AUCTeX
previously was not activated in XEmacs, since we _did_ activate
preview-latex by default.

But indeed there has been a change of recommended policy for all
involved platforms.  Since large parts of the documentation of AUCTeX
and preview-latex were kept mostly in sync, I can't rule out that the
documentation was faster than the code with following the policy.  In
fact I am not even sure that the code for creating a combined
AUCTeX/preview-latex XEmacs package already follows the documented
policy since the procedure has just recently been coded.  But it
certainly will before this is released.  Yes, it will mean that the
mere act of installing a Sumo tarball will replace the default mode of
XEmacs unless you start it with -no-site-file.  It is something that I
consider tolerable with the current mechanisms in place.

Yes.  Quite many changes, and pretty thorough preview-latex
integration.  There is not much that is really important for AUCTeX 12
that is still remaining.

There, and in Appendix A in the CVS builds.
