Technically spoken, you're right. But it might be difficult to request
from an XEmacs user to checkout code from the GNU Emacs repository in
order to test the very recent patches.

Furthermore, there might be files which are dedicated to XEmacs only,
and not for GNU Emacs. This is the case at least for Tramp.

And contributions from XEmacs users would also be less frequent (not
that there are so many in the Tramp case :-(

Best regards, Michael.
