Fine by me. It's only 2 or 3 files.

Please install whatever version you prefer, regardless of warnings.
Personally, I would just expand the define-obsolete-function-alias
macro (for Emacs 21), and leave the featurep test, since: i) it's
totally correct today; ii) it seems unlikely XEmacs will ever add
float-time; iii) even if it does, it does zero harm if Gnus keeps
using time-to-seconds there; and iv) since Gnus will want to support
older versions of XEmacs, you wont be able to remove time-to-seconds
for many years anyway.
