I'll take a look.  It looks like Marcus Harnisch updated the XEmacs
version to upstream revision 463 back in January.  He would probably
have a better chance than I would of not botching a move to revision
502.  Plus, I'd have no idea how to test the result since I am
entirely ignorant of Verilog.

Ugh, it looks like we have some GPLv2 versus GPLv3 issues with that
file.  Let me talk to the other developers about what we can do.

No.  The .el files are the source code.  Both editors byte compile
that source code into a .elc file, but their byte codes diverged some
years back.  Some distributions have tried to share code between the
two, with invariably disastrous results for one editor or the other.
