sb> XEmacs 21.0 is winding down to a close. The latest scheduled
sb> release date is (7/31). Where do you want to go tomorrow?
As long as we're wishin'...
Mule should be reincarnated. Ben Wing did a great job of making the
multi-byte-character-oriented text code intelligible, and there's an
immense amount of useful, even essential, LISP-level code.
However something needs to be done about the interface (eg, to avoid
the need for an installed mule-base to build a Mule XEmacs). We also
need to sort out the dependencies among Mule proper, LEIM, and Quail
so that not-yet-fully-supported ports from FSF code (eg, Ethiopian)
don't break XEmacs's ability to build. Although maybe that can be
considered a bug to be sorted out in 21.1.
It would be nice to get Olivier's flavored (1-, 2-, 4-byte) text
objects, with bytes, ISO-8859, UCS-2, and UCS-4 as the internal codes.

sb> the case, but it's just my feeling.
