It's worked well in XEmacs since 2000.  If you want to use our code
you'll need to get papers from J. Kean Johnston and Jerry James, and
maybe Ben Wing.  I don't know how hard that will be, finding Kean
might be hard.

Jerry's been pretty busy recently, but he might be willing to give
advice if you go the roll-your-own route.
