Sorry, I was just being facetious and irresponsible. I don't have a
strong opinion one way or the other on this non-free removal issue
(and I don't have a vote), I'm just average luser. Its just that I
find it vaguely funny that packaging XEmacs could be
controversial. Don't ask me to explain, I just do.

I'll be quiet.....
