make-overlay is in the fsf-compatibility package, I think. I don't have
an xemacs around to try, and find it hard to use as I'm more used to 
emacs. I try to get these differences sorted out, but it's not easy!
There are so many little differences. I wasn't surprised to find
in make-overlay as its "emulated" on xemacs. But did you know that
the `subseq' function behaves differently between the two!
