But apparently I was under the wrong impression about which branch of
Emacs development was going to be released. I committed calc to what
was HEAD at the time, and I thought that was going to become 21.3, but
there was a different branch slated for release. Anyways, calc will be
in 21.4. Just check out Emacs from CVS and peruse "NEWS".
The next obvious question is when 21.4 is going to be released, and I
can't answer that...
