First of all, I do not have enough knoledge about the current situation
of Emacs variants.
My private hope is that emacs-w3m may keep the backward compatibility
for GNU Emacs whose major version is minus one to the latest version.
It means, I hope that emacs-w3m may keep the backward compatibility to
Emacs24, while Emacs25 is the latest.
The reason of my hope is that I am a user of Debian GNU/Linux stable
release. Until `stretch' was released at July 2017, I used `jessie'
which do not contain Emacs25 but contain Emacs24. Generally speaking,
its stable version contains the just previous major version of Emacs.
Anyway, I do not have enough knoledge about the current situation of
Emacs variants, thus, I do not oppose droping the support of older
Emacsen and XEmacs. But, in my opinion, we should increment the major
version of emacs-w3m before doing so.
