there are a few changes in Emacs-mode that need to be done and stuff
that needs to be cleaned/fixed.  I don't have what it takes to do this
with large amounts of backward-compatibility in mind (and that includes
XEmacs which, all-in-all, uses quite older versions and APIs of generic

As one data point, I don't want to cater for Emacs versions not
supporting lexical-binding (available as of Emacs 24.1) when writing new
code as not being able to use closures is a real nuisance.

In the medium range, I want to move LilyPond-mode to ELPA (the official
package archive of Emacs) as installing packages via ELPA rather than
via our own build procedure is more reliable and I have my doubts that
our binary installers have much of a chance to install Emacs modes

That means that without additional care, XEmacs+LilyPond will fall
victim to bitrot.

However, that's preferable to LilyPond-mode falling victim to bitrot on
all platforms.

Is that ok with people?
