Fine. I hope that this means that my patch is approved.

Err, yes, sorry for the confusion. Now I understand you concern: I can
understand that the lisp files in XEMACS-21.4.5/lisp/ shouldn't require
anything from XEMACS-PACKAGES/lisp/fsf-compat/...

If our version would be too different from Emacs one, we would continue
to have an outdated version due to ressource limits.

At least I'll try. BTW, there are quite a few XEmacs compatibility
issues mentioned in EMACS-21.1/lisp/ChangeLog.
But since I have to work on s/th else now I would appreciate if my patch
will be approved first.
