[ I've suggested to add `crm.el' (completing-read-multiple) which is
available in Emacs 21 and Emacs 22 (CVS[2]) to XEmacs on xemacs-beta.

Attached is revision 1.5 [2] from Emacs CVS plus the update of FSF
address (done in revision 1.8 in Emacs CVS).  The changes from
revision 1.6 and 1.7 cannot be applied because XEmacs doesn't have
`minibuffer-prompt-end'.  I propose to add the attached file to the
edit-utils package as suggested by Ben.

Suggested ChangeLog entry:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
2005-10-26  Reiner Steib  <address@hidden>

        * crm.el: New file.  Revison 1.5 of lisp/emacs-lisp/crm.el in
        Emacs.  Update FSF's address.

I've tested the attached version of `crm.el' with these versions of

"XEmacs 21.5 (beta18) \"chestnut\" (+CVS-20041021) [Lucid]
(i386-suse-linux, Mule) of Tue Mar 22 2005 on mozart"

"XEmacs 21.4 (patch 15) \"Security Through Obscurity\" [Lucid]
(x86_64-suse-linux, Mule) of Fri Feb 11 2005 on helvede"

Sorry, I didn't download an compile a XEmacs 21.5 or the most recent
beta release.  But I think it's quite unlikely that `crm.el' wont work
with current CVS.  Maybe people using current XEmacs from CVS and/or
current AUCTeX[3] from CVS could report success or problems.  There
are some testing examples at the end of `crm.el'.

Bye, Reiner.
