Description of problem:
Currently XEmacs resource file uses
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/*/app-defaults/Emacs, but it should
use /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/*/app-defaults/XEmacs to avoid to confuse
with Emacs resource files.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

I'll try to discuss this upstream, but in the past
this idea has not been popular if my memory serves
me correctly. However I don't think we should do this
unilaterally without some concensus from upstream.
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2003-10-17 08:41:38 EDT
All the XEmacs resource files have been moved to
datadir/xemacs/mule-packages/etc/app-defaults/ in
Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2003-12-16 00:42:26 EST
One problem with this is that it affects users' personal X
resources, and perhaps vice-versa: using XEmacs instead of
Emacs may mean the system or personal resources getting ignored,
I think.  So I'm not keen on this change, I'm afraid.

From the manual:
| Starting with XEmacs 21, XEmacs uses the class `XEmacs' if
| it finds any XEmacs resources in the resource database when
| the X connection is initialized.  Otherwise, it will use the
| class `Emacs' for backwards compatibility.
