As far as I've been able to gather from this list, having XEmacs
compatibility code in an Emacs package isnt a problem in principle,
though it might become a maintenance problem.

If ECB is integrated in Emacs, and interfaces between lisp code and
the C core are worked out, the maintenance burden might even become
less because XEmacs might choose to implement the same
interfaces. (Ok, this is naive optimism, but this list might benefit
from some of that :)
