I too would be disappointed if XEmacs support were dropped.

I've tried switching to gnu-emacs several times in the
last 5 year, and invariably come crawling back to XEmacs,
usually after spending fruitless hours trying to get fonts and
other visual features to look acceptable in gnu-emacs (Linux).
Have tried running both on the same system: bad mistake.

  very valid points about the time-consuming tedium of
maintaining  SLIME for the two divergent emacsen. I have
several persistent problems with SLIME that seem to only
afflict XEmacs, and I suspect there are more important
goals for SLIME development. Overall, the desire for a stable
and reliable SLIME outweighs my preference for XEmacs, so
I'm willing to switch.

Maybe there is a recovery group for XEmacs users?
