So, you didn't see my response to another post in this thread, mentioning
that I'm having problems editing remote files with the current Emacs 22 on
Windows?  No doubt there is a solution a solution to this, but no, using
Emacs 21 is *not* "simply silly".  Apart from that, Emacs 21 is still the
version I get with two other systems I regularly work on - FreeBSD and
Debian GNU/Linux.  (Debian Etch - just recently sanctioned as the new
"stable" Debian - of course comes with the "stable" version of Emacs -
version 21.)
