sorry if this is the second. ]
Is there any thought on the future of Quail in XEmacs?
I went back to the problem of getting Quail working properly in
isearch, and I'm almost there, though it has been a nightmare, as
isearch is a twisty self-connected maze, and so is Quail, so the
combination is a twisty 4D multiply self-connected maze.
(It doesn't help that XEmacs has three different definitions of
minibuffer - I spent ages working out why my code did something
slightly odd! And the debugger doesn't seem usable with code that
plays fast and loose with events. Could it ever be?)
However, in FSFmacs it already works, and does so with less
contortions, owing to a few things in their Quail and isearch
that aren't in ours.
I had to modify quail anyway, so I wondered: if I were to bring some
of the FSF changes into quail and isearch, would you take them up? (I
usually work with the 21.4 codebase, but there are only minor changes
in isearch between 21.4 and 21.5.)
