Re: `~/.xemacs/{init,.options}.el' (Was: Re: [XEmacs] New Maintainer, soonish.)

Karl, please, for everyone's sake -- don't do this. Yes, it's an
excellent idea. Nobody's going to argue that! But Debian has absolutely
no place changing the behavior of a program so radically like this.

People with NFS-mounted home directories are going to have to start
keeping multiple copies of their initialization files around. XEmacs
developers are going to get flaming bug reports when Debian users
try to edit ~/.emacs like the nice O'Reilly book said to and nothing

Rather than doing this, why not work with the XEmacs developers on
a solution that will work for everyone?
