Versions: 21.3, 21.4a
Mule-UCS, as referenced by `etc/MORE.STUFF', will not work with emacs
21.3 or 21.4a. Worked only after patching as reproduced below, and
did not observe critical bugs in it yet. Wrote to <mule <at> m17n.org>
about that on 2005-08-31, and on 2005-09-02 posted the fix. Still
received no response to neither of messages, and it is very unlikely
to happen in the nearest future.
<http://www.m17n.org/mlarchive/mule/> that mailing list contains at
most half-dozen msgs a month, and often no one in a month, so the
mailing list appears near to dead, and patch release of mule-ucs is
Perhaps you will decide to maintain its own branch of mule-ucs.
Perhaps putting the patch in `PROBLEMS' file is enough. Anyway,
To comments and `ChangeLog' entry may add that actually checked the
byte compilers misfeature in question. In both emacs 20.7 and xemacs
21.4 they process `(progn progn ...)' the same way as `(progn ...)'.
In emacs 21.3, 21.4a `(progn progn ...)' is processed just as
interpreter does, that is, as `progn' variable reference. Never
figured what such a misfeature depends on and what version changed it.
* mucs-ccl.el (mucs-ccl-generate-registration-program): Return
exactly list of forms suitable for including in BODY of `progn' or
like. Do not rely on byte-compiler (mis-) features.
