Hi, folks.  I'm the Gnus maintainer for XEmacs.  Stephen T. pointed me
at this discussion.

The XEmacs-specific code in Gnus appears in one of two ways (that I'm
aware of):

1. XEmacs-specific files (gnus-xmas.el, messagexmas.el)
2. (featurep 'xemacs) checks in otherwise common code.

I just did a quick pass through the Gnus 5.10.10 sources to see how
often (featurep 'xemacs) appears.  I get 45 hits for message.el plus
mm*.el (171 hits for Gnus as a whole).  A lot of those 45 hits are in
menu generation code, leaving 18 or so places that will like require
more serious work for refactoring.

gnus-xmas.el and messagexmas.el are distributed with the Gnus releases
from gnus.org.  I'd like to see those files remain with the Gnus
sources, as separating them would increase the risk of breakage as
changes are made to the common code.
