You can split your configuration in more than one file. I have a
folder ~/.emacs.d/lisp where I put my configuration files.  Then I add
this line to my init file (~/.emacs):

    (add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/.emacs.d/lisp"))

In that folder, I create files named after functionality.  For
example, I have a file named "init-coding-haskell.el" with
customizations for Haskell programming.  That file is loaded
automatically by this line in my init file:

    (require 'init-coding-haskell)

XEmacs is no longer in active development and saw its last release in
January 2009.  It lacks important features, and many popular Emacs
packages (such as org-mode and magit) do not support XEmacs.
