Description

Ship emacs instead of xemacs:
* C-Backspace works, yay!
* you can use it directly in a console: emacs.exe --no-window-system
* It matches the emacs keystrokes I think most people are used to: M-g g for goto-line, for example

http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/windows/ has the ZIP files, which are easy as pie to unzip anywhere.

When this happens a couple of the init files which currently mention xemacs should mention emacs instead. I'd suggest that the default EDITOR should be 'emacs.exe --no-window-system'.
