So it is this situation that is nagging me. Just drop in a version
with 21.5 and it works or work harder to get it to work in 21.4.
Sure, but I at least am committed to maintaining backward
compatibility for 21.4 for 6 months after the next version is declared
It's usually not that much extra work, and if it is, we can (rarely)
For `replace-regexp-in-string', we can move it out of 21.5 to
xemacs-base (or fsf-compat, if it's too yucky, but it seems like it
might be useful).
`with-no-warnings' is one of those piles of GNU poop we should avoid
if possible. (C-h f with-byte-compiler-warnings-suppressed for how to
do it in XEmacs if you really must.) As far as I know there is no
warning in XEmacs Lisp that is sufficiently stupid that it makes sense
to ignore all warnings just to suppress that one. This one we should
definitely put in fsf-compat (my 21.5 seems to have it :-( ).
