emacspeak-gnus and emacs 24



1: Backward compatibility with emacs 22 is not a major
consideration

2. Emacspeak in svn is pretty much built against emacs 24 out of
git --- and I try to keep support for emacs 23.

3. For this particular case:

A: s/*article*/gnus-article-buffer
B: ensure that gnus-article-buffer is added to relevant (declare
(special ...) forms
C: at the top of the file, add the following check:
(unless (symbolp 'gnus-article-buffer)
(defvar gnus-article-buffer "*article*"
"For bckward compatibility with earlier versions of gnus"))

4. I've not used gnus in a long time, so emacspeak-gnus.el needs
a maintainer -- I'll review patches and check them in if they're tested.
