Great, thank you!  I've applied the change to the current git master.

IMO, it's about time to increment the supported emacs versions to 22 and
above.  I think emacs 22 might still be widely used because that ships
with Mac OS X but at least all GNU/Linux distros I know ship at least
some Emacs 23 version.  And on Windows where the user has to retrieve
and install Emacs on his own, there is also no reason to stick to 21.
