No idea. GNU Emacs' redisplay seems to be getting annoyingly slow (i.e.
with heavy or even not-so-heavy font-locking, scrolling is sometimes
rather painful, and it's probably only going to get worse with bidi),
but given that I haven't been able to test GUI XEmacs lately, I have no

freedom, not as in Free Software Foundation" ;-). Stephen J. Turnbull
