Re: [emacs-w3m/emacs-w3m] Slow beginning to remove xemacs support, rm w3m-xmas .. (#28)

Hi Katsumi San.

This is kind of offtopic. I have xemacs still installed and my dot emacs
supports it too:

I was never a xemacs user. But I tried w3m on xemacs without luck 3 years ago.

Perhaps what I am going to say. It is not possible. But recently I have
run emacs-20 on Dosbox. ¿why? because it was available on that
machine. :)
So. maybe in the far future someone need to try xemacs (just for
historical reasons). It would be nice if there is a emacs-w3m git tag about the
last commit working with xemacs. Just an idea.
