My point is that Emacs should never put all of its eggs in the same
basket, when we consider basic software on which we rely for our
functionality.  So relying only on Motif, or only on Lucid, and
dropping all the rest, would be as wrong as dropping everything else
in favor of GTK.  Emacs should survive and remain useful even if one
of those packages becomes dead.
