The syntax table stuff is unlikely to get fixed by XEmacs core
developers until Ben returns, because it hooks into various processes
at a rather low level.  If somebody wants to invest in studying that
stuff and produce a patch, I'd be happy to review.

Inciting to riot should be beneath you, David.  But be my guest: I
have plenty of nagging voices in my head, but I've learned to ignore
them.  I can ignore one more.

Patches, however, are welcome, and will get attention.

That's true of everybody.  XEmacs is a user-supported project; things
get fixed when people contribute fixes.  All you contribute, though,
is abuse.  More abuse?  No, thank you.

Patches, however, are welcome.
