Given the fact that XEmacs development has been discontinued, I think we
can stop supporting it actively.  It's probably too early to remove
compatibility code, but I don't think it's worth the trouble to consider
XEmacs support for new code at least.

Well, and in the concrete case, if one character in the ChangeLog shows
up as \xxx or a box, I don't consider that a drama. :-)

The ChangeLog.1 has been ok in ISO-8859-1.  But the ChangeLog for
releases is produced by prepending the git log from the day of our
switch to ChangeLog.1, and some recent git commit has the non-ISO-8859-1
char in its message.  I.e., from now on the ChangeLog that's distributed
with AUCTeX releases will be UTF-8, too.
