Can we add this to some appropriate XEmacs package? The new pcl-cvs
maintainer has decided to use this package, which is included in GNU
Emacs, and I'd like to be able to upgrade our pcl-cvs before too
(I'm not currently on the list so please include me in replies)

;; Minor modes are useful and common. This package makes defining a
;; minor mode easy, by focusing on the writing of the minor mode
;; functionalities themselves. Moreover, this package enforces a
;; conventional naming of user interface primitives, making things
;; natural for the minor-mode end-users.
;; For each mode, easy-mmode defines the following:
;; <mode> : The minor mode predicate. A buffer-local variable.
;; <mode>-map : The keymap possibly associated to <mode>.
;; <mode>-hook,<mode>-on-hook,<mode>-off-hook and <mode>-mode:
;; see `easy-mmode-define-minor-mode' documentation
;; (pp (macroexpand '(easy-mmode-define-minor-mode <your-mode> <doc>)))
;; to check the result before using it.
;; The order in which minor modes are installed is important. Keymap
;; lookup proceeds down minor-mode-map-alist, and the order there
;; tends to be the reverse of the order in which the modes were
;; installed. Perhaps there should be a feature to let you specify
