I just noticed these changes in CVS, with the following log entry:

   Updated to IDLWAVE version 5.5.  See idlwave.org

A few little nits:

  (1) When you update files in the Emacs sources from an external copy,
      _do not_ just "drop in" your latest version -- there may be
      changes to the Emacs copy that will be lost if you do that.

      Instead, either apply a patch from your old version to your new
      version to the emacs copy, or generate a patch in the emacs tree
      from the last time you merged to the current date, and apply that
      patch to your copy before committing it.

  (2) The new files have RCS keywords like:

         ;; Date: $Date: 2004/11/17 05:54:20 $

      Please do not use these in Emacs source files.  [As it happens,
      one of Emacs changes lost when you dropped in your new version was
      an RCS-keyword removal change.]

  (3) Please provide at least a minimal ChangeLog entry accompanying
      your changes.  [Maybe you just haven't committed it yet, but it's
      been a few hours since your changes, so...]
