That one uses emacs from Feb 1, 2005. The latest stable release of emacs 
is version  21.4 (Feb 6, 2005). See: 
http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/emacs.html  This is supposed to 
support Mac OS X natively. What does that mean?

I don't want to go to the effort of updating emacs and then have to do 
it immediately again. Is there much customization that needs to be done 
to use all of the latex goodies using this emacs? Or should I wait till 
someone else does it?
