I'm not sure we're understanding each other. I can understand having
the functions in core in 21.5, plus a version in packages using
defun-when-void for 21.4. What I'm saying is that there should only be
*one* copy in packages, for use by all the packages. But your patches
introduce duplicates in gnus, xemacs-base, misc-games, etc. Instead,
put one copy in xemacs-base (case-table.el? new file?), and all the
other packages can use that copy, yeah?
That introduces new package dependencies, something I’m not in a hurry to do
given how much Mike Sperber fucked up the package build last time he did
so. (And he still hasn’t fixed it!) The Gnus folk will probably approach the
thing differently anyway, and define a mm-put-display-table, but that is
