You mean "Emacs - XEmacs", right?
Because AFAIK, the other one is called just "XEmacs", not "XEmacs Emacs".

Why write them when the web does it for you.

Just write your package for whichever variant you care about, and then post
it to gnu.emacs.sources and/or emacswiki and then something magic happens
and people send you patches to add support for the other flavors.


PS: Yes, I know people tend to first ask for that support rather than send
patches, but if you wait long enough, the patches will come.  If they don't,
it's a pretty clear sign that nobody cares enough about it, so your effort
would have been wasted anyway.
