Ah, there we go;-)

Two answers:

1. what little I know about Emacs scripting I learned during this 
     project, so I wouldn't even know what is different in XEmacs
     or why XEmacs doesn't work with the Emacs version of the 
     interface. Help from X/Emacs hackers is welcome.

2. we don't want to get bogged down in supporting various 
    frontends, but we do want to enable others to contribute
    interface versions for their favourite editor/IDE.

According to a survey we did here a while ago, Vim and Emacs
cover the majority of Haskell programmers' environments (we 
didn't distinguish between the various members of the families).

However, the main reason that we try to support two editor 
interfaces is to avoid dependencies on features only available
in one specific editor. In other words, if we can script interfaces
for both Vim and Emacs, and you are not using these popular
editors, you can probably script an interface to HaRe for your 
own editor (unless that editor is overly limited;-). If you need 
help with the HaRe-side of the interface, just let us know 
(, project mailing list: refactor-fp).

Was that what you wanted to hear?-)
