That sounds like a backwards dependency. Volker, shouldn't it be that
xemacs depends on xemacs-emacs-common, and that xemacs-emacs-common is
standalone? If you agree, I can change the setup.hints.

I didn't think this was a showstopper for uploading -3, but hope that
Steffen can look into it and release a -4 someday.

That's because of a setup.exe limitation - it does not pick up
dependencies that are not on the same server as the package you are
picking up. Now that I have uploaded emacs to cygwin.com, that should no
longer be an issue (but in the meantime, Steffen could have worked around
that by copying a few more packages to his site).
> Beside this clicking on emacs-X11 first selects the old 21 packages then
Again due to setup.exe weirdness when pulling to setup.ini from different
servers with different ideas about what version should be experimental.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
