In xemacs core beta and stable versions are marked fairly clearly,
that is, kept in separate cvs branches. There are obvious and well-
known cvs commands to obtain both beta and stable snapshot and do
whatever merging or other operations on them one pleases to. In

This is one of reasons to answer "no".

Please put in your `TODO' a task to create such a procedures for
packages (and maintain appropriate labels in cvs).
