It might be worthwhile to look again when Emacs 23 comes out on 29 July.
Then it will have proper unicode support (or mule 6.0, none of the other
variants has this), xft font etc.

Generally there are lots of people on gmane.emacs.help (including Emacs
developers) that can help out.

It is sad that XEmacs does not have enough man power. Otherwise a
healthy competition is always good for both projects.

Emacs uptime: 1 day, 1 hour, 23 minutes, 53 seconds
