"stay the course" vs. fork?

This is the old fork: I believe there is already substantial divergence between emacs 22 and xemacs 21.5.27, which is not the point. (Which is to get the current FSF emacs 22 sources out, and the emacs project back on a more regular release schedule.)

"stay the course" vs. fork? (forking the question thread, ok?)

Several years ago I used xemacs running on a Unix over straight emacs, I think it was in the version 20.x series (21.x was released about that time, but I didn't upgrade). At the same time I was trying not to use Linux too much at home, but there too I thought I preferred xemacs over emacs, though neither worked quite the same as under Unix. I thought the xemacs under Unix was easier than either under linux, however, now I just remember to hit the delete key first when typing into a highlighted region.
Now using Linux all the time, I prefer emacs, where my use of either the Mac or Windows is so minor as to not warrant mention.

I read that the xemacs group wanted to merge back into emacs, within
the last year or so. It was my impression that RMS rejected the offer
out of hand
