Since it is compatibility variable, should not XEmacs provide also
compatibility function for setting it ? It is set-buffer-multibyte in
Note, however, that some packages use setq-default to set it, and
default-value to read its value. But I assume this is broken behaviour.
Ooh...I thought they smelled bad on the outside!
