If you (or anybody else) are playing with the package system, one
thing I have on my todo list (but it's lisp, and lisp and me, eek) is:
- Move configure-package-path from inside packages-find-packages to
the pfp's caller in startup.el.
- Have p-f-p or lower autodetect the type of directory by testing the
presence of an xemacs-packages directory.
This way configure [...] --package-path=<prefix>/lib/xemacs will be
strictly equivalent to not putting the parameter. And, more
interestingly, it will make --package-path usable in environments
where you have both a mule and a non-mule compile.
