An alias for "ignore" is cheap > and requires zero maintenance. "Zero maintenance" is an exaggeration, IME. Not every code fragment that uses these compatibility shims is as clear-cut as the snippet above; more often than not, when working on code which references those shims, one needs to dig quite deeply into the sources until he/she understands that the code is a no-op in Emacs. That digging takes/wastes time and effort. > OTOH, removing it will make the life of those people who try to keep > their packages compatible with XEmacs more complicated. I'm sorry, but that ship has sailed several months ago. Gobs of XEmacs compatibility features were removed already, after the removal move was announced. Are you saying we should reinstate all of them back? If not, what is so special about this particular one?
