Just woundering, why was NTEmacs abandoned in TL 2003? None of my users
are using Xemacs, in fact I think I only know one XEmacs user. A lot of my
users rely on the fact that the Emacs version/flavor they use one their
windows systems behave and look exactly like the one they use on our Linux
system. (well preview-latex doesn work yet... on windows)

I usualy just let them borrow a copy of TL 7 just to get the NTEmacs
(because it alrady has Auc TeX installed)
