Non-MULE XEmacs does not get along much better, I think.

Not needing Perl for installation would, of course, be a benefit to
us.  The disadvantage is that the Perl script is some example of how
one could in a more general way convert .dtx to .texi, and people are
more likely to pick it up in Perl.  But maybe Emacs is a saner build
requirement for creating .texi, anyway.
