Possible last-minute inclusion in Slackware 1337 -- new Emacs released...

Hi all,

As with the last several Slackware releases, a new version of Emacs is available at almost the exact same time!

Emacs 23.3 was released this past week. It's a bug-fix release, and a good one.

If possible, it would be great if it could be included in Slackware 1337.

(Otherwise, it's really no big deal to download the source and then modify the SlackBuild script and ancillary files in the /Slackwarexxx/source/e/emacs folder to build the newer version.)
