The reason for using Mule code in XEmacs in the first place was that
by the time anybody who understood multilingual processing because
they suffered from from it, Sun had already awarded the contract to
Ben et al and it was a done deal.  Since then, we haven't fixed it

else really cares.  Believe me, I *want* to do it.
