I got this message this morning from someone who noticed the use of

  Recent FSF Emacsen offer a function `expand-in-literal' (in
  expand.el) which shows how to use `parse-partial-sexp' directly
  instead, and that code is much more portable (even to XEmacs).

I'll try and take a look at that but I don't have XEmacs to test
against so maybe you'll want to take a crack at it yourself. Or at
least look for my forthcoming patch and test it in XEmacs and let us
know how it works.

Should be coming soon.
