I think it's ELIB that was not in Emacs w32 (which would be right) -- what Lin
is saying that Emacs W32 now comes with the various bits from ELIB in Emacs
w32 base. ELIB, as a seperate entity, has now been decommissioned.
In general, a good idea, but a pain in this case. Especially as I have no idea
what xemacs is doing.
I guess that there is a decision to be made here; maintaining backward support
is going to be a pain, but relying on a snapshot Emacs is not idea --
avl-tree.el is on my windows box for example, but not my ubuntu.
