Not a dead end:
Emacs development has continued and version 22 is due RSN. For Windows
users, I'd recommend EmacsW32 and binaries of the patched Emacs available
from http://ourcomments.org/Emacs/EmacsW32.html. The binaries are current
( last time I checked) and the provided EmacsW32 extension offers
quite a few goodies.
