That is of course not comparable to GNU emacs but still the project is
*not* dead. As David Kastrup pointed it out, xemacs is in a state
comparable to (plain) TeX: very few contributions, but not dead.

Also I switched for most of my work to GNU emacs, I still would like to
see that the Xemacs compat code would stay in auctex[1], till it really
caused trouble of course.

[1]  I am still the xemacs auctex pkg provider, but since all the xemacs
     services were down till very recently, it did not make any sense to
     upgrade to the latest 11.89 (xemacs still uses auctex 11.87).
