xref.el was designed with the hope that it could accommodate "any" tool, so
it would be really helpful if you could try and make elisp-refs work via
xref.el.  And if there's some problem doing so, please report it as
a bug so we can improve xref.el.

Of course.  If you don't have write access yet to the repository, ask
for it by requesting membership in the "emacs" group from your
