Which you declare even before receiving such a report.  And you ignore
"single nagging" because it supposedly indicates only outliers.

If I do this "half the time", it should not be difficult for you to
back up this claim with a _single_ such example.  I am afraid that
your memory plays games with you (not that this is the first time I
suspect that).  Such cutesies (as well as smilies) are not part of my
personal style.  I prefer to let the words speak for themselves.

You've seen Robert's patch and my comments on it, I presume, as well
as the corresponding code from Emacs I posted.

Finding out _who_ put that strange copy-syntax-table there for _what_
reason should be easy for an XEmacs developer with CVS access.
