I agree that the files that are specific to an XEmacs version can go into
/usr/lib/xemacs-$VERSION, but I was actually referring to the package
hierarchy. The default for this is also to put all these packages into
/usr/lib, but these should really go to /usr/share. Apologies for not
making the distinction between the packages and the list files more clear.
