Not sure, I didn't write that :> But I'll check it out shortly.

OK. I'll need to fix this shortly.
I'm about to be working hard on the emacs21 package which needs to be
done immediately, so expect to see a lot of noise out of me shortly.
On the bright side, I expect that *many* of the long-standing emacs20
bugs will be ready for retirement -- I'm wondering if I should bother
reassigning them to emacs21 and then close them, or if I should just
tag them 'wontfix.
