Well, no, they're not. They're in site-packages, which means we won't
be breaking XEmacs of any version (assuming Leif has all xemacs+mule
SUMO packages installed). As long as we aren't distributing such
files, a change won't break XEmacs.
Since they exist, presumably they break user code (which I consider
worse, if this feature is advertised). I suggest finding out what
code and negotiating with the user(s).
But you know this stuff better than me, Aidan. Am I missing something?
Yes; it appears that Leif has installed the “locale” Mule package in his
site-packages directory. It installs the locale-specific X11 app defaults
file in the etc/app-defaults/<ISO-639-1-LANGUAGE-CODE>/ directories. If you
have a sumo install, the corresponding files will be in
$prefix/share/mule-packages/etc/app-defaults/*/ on your system.

I agree in principle, but it doesn't take a Weatherman to know which
way the wind blows. If, as several people have advocated, we are
going to try to release the current code base *soon* more or less
*as-is*, then we need 21.6 to be as portable as possible from 21.4
because it has so few user-visible improvements (IMO, Mule on
Windows counts +1, usable Unicode coding systems counts +1, and Xft
counts +1 = 3).
