IOW, the issue is not "should CC-mode drop support for XEmacs?", but
"should CC-mode's maintainer spend his time preserving XEmacs
compatibility?".  While the indentation code is rather involved (and
hence difficult for someone other than Alan to hack on), the code need
for compatibility with a particular emacs is not particularly deep
or tricky, so many more people can contribute to that.
