Is there any way we can move forward?
- Is it possible to make an emacs-w3m-light variant, which doesnt
include the problematic code, and which is still somewhat useful?
If this is possible standard emacs packages could begin to benefit
from emacs-w3m-light, and users could begin using it, and then upgrade
to the full emacs-w3m later.
- Is it possible to contact the employers and appeal to them?
