I have packaged xemacs in a 'private' repo in EL5 for some time now, and
I have a user who use it to typeset tex documents. So far he had no
issues. But I don't want to commit to maintain xemacs in EL-5, fearing
that it could become time consuming. I would agree to be co-maintainer,
though, if it is wanted.
