Hi gang.  As I've mentioned previously on this list, I'm very eager to
get this working on ntemacs (gnu emacs on windows).  I don't want to
be misled by the subject line of this thread, which mentions only
xemacs.  Has anyone verified the new functionality with ntemacs as

If nobody has, I'll gladly volunteer to do this if someone can point
me to what I need.

I'm currently running ntemacs (not officially released but
available as prebuilt binaries on the web).  For python mode, it uses
a file called python.el -- mine says it's version 22.1.

The latest release of ntemacs from gnu.org is 21.3.  I don't believe
the standard distribution comes with python support.  I used a file
called python-mode.el which says it's revision 4.70.

Is the xemacs on windows / ntemacs support supposed to be used with
python.el only,  python-mode.el only, or will either one work?  FWIW,
I believe python.el has more extensive python support.

I'm savvy enough to pull non-released files from svn, cvs, etc.
Recompiling C/C++ is a taller order, but not necessarily out of the
realm of possibility.

Let me know if / how I can help.
