It's actually the other way round.  I happen to prefer GNU Emacs for
several reasons, but I know from personal experience that XEmacs is
far more feature-rich than GNU Emacs.  xemacs-sumo offers a lot of
applications that are not available within GNU Emacs.  If we are to
remove one of them, the one that is mostly duplicate functionality is
GNU Emacs.  w3-mode, mailcrypt, auctex are some of the apps that come
to mind as built into XEmacs but missing from GNU Emacs.
