Re: Revert try-require?


Since Timo too says try-require is not necessary, I will delete it.

My previous message was not accurate, and Chris replied correctly. Let
me amend.

The above example is not a recommended way to code. If `require
fdo-menu' may fail, then it should not be hard-wired into (except .sawfishrc) This is why try-require is not desirable.

And you can do the same thing with:

(condition-case nil
    (require 'foo)
    ;; do fancy things...
  (error fallback...))

So it's not necessary.
