I don't see what this has to do with what I said.  The ctext coding
system needs to support extended segments because they are part of the
specification, not an extension of it as the code either says or
implies.  What was implemented is a different coding system, not an
extended version of ctext.  Also, the relevant specification is not
ICCCM, it's CTEXT, and it seems difficult to argue the case for other
people implementing that spec properly if it looks as though the Emacs
version is in ignorance of it.

I don't know what that's meant to imply, but I doubt it's fair to
blame him for problems with it.
