If they put it in some package (this is what I'd suggest), the user
may upgrade this packages if he want this AUCTeX functionality.

AFAICS, it's in the package "riece".  In SuSE 9.2 it is in
xemacs-packages-20040202.  AFAIK, the packages are independent of
XEmacs' version number.

I don't think so.

In <address@hidden> you wrote:

I think we should provide an option to get the current behavior back.
Things like these might be in the finger-memory of users.  If we have
this option, it could default to "intelligent" (using
TeX-arg-usepackage with `crm.el') when `completing-read-multiple' is
available and to the old style otherwise.

I wouldn't spend too much time trying to provide a better fallback for
Emacsen without `completing-read-multiple'.  YMMV.  I've send a mail
to xemacs-beta suggesting to add `crm.el'.[1]

BTW, when suggesting patches, I'd prefer if you post them on the list
(unless they are really big; you could attach a zipped patch) instead
of only providing an URL.

Bye, Reiner.
