Having RefTeX on a separate release cycle than Emacs allows people to
keep a stable Emacs base system, but pick up RefTeX improvements
without needing to upgrade everything else that comes with Emacs at
the same time.  It also allows people to get RefTeX updates without
waiting years for an Emacs release.  Many people don't want to track
Emacs CVS, but would be willing to track released updates of a
specific component.

Carsten once made some changes to improve indexing a specific case for
me, and it was very nice that I could get them without going into CVS
or waiting for an Emacs release.
