emacs19 is light weight than emacs20, xemacs20 and xemacs21.
And many people need this.
We should not be throw away it even so it's just obsolete.

Yes, I see. But, do you know the story of working merge patches for FSF
Emacs? I heard that, RMS refusing Japanese IM patches or so and no longer
merge into FSF Emacs. (The working start since long time ago.)
Emacs20 dose not support all Mule features.

And, Mule2(and Emacs19) have just light weight for poor machines even
if all patches was merged into Emacs20.
