Good idea.

I don't agree, removing emacs21 from the archive will not remove it
from the users' systems so upgrading tramp will not suddenly install
xemacs21.  And forcing users to install emacs21 | xemacs21 alongside
tramp on new installs is good, it will prompt emacs22 users to
double-check if they really need it.
