Actually, I'm handling emacs as of 19.31. I don't see any
documentation (at least in anything that's made it to a mirror) that
mentions it, but from the vi and gawk examples, I think I see what it
Do we need to pick a "real" name, like "tags" and then use something
like --program-transform-name to have xemacs and fsfemacs install
something like ctags-emacs and ctags-xemacs, and likewise for etags,
so that a user just drops the package in place and gets *some* version
of ctags and *some* version of etags? If that makes sense, it solves
this problem as well as the emacs19/xemacs support-program conflicts,
Let me know if this makes sense, and I'll work it into 19.31.
