I don't use the menu bar so I've never noticed this entry before. I can
take a look; maybe the compatibility code isn't needed anymore and we
can remove it. At the same time, I'll see if the "Directory Servers"
entry might be useful.

AFAICS, the compat code is needed if we still want to pretend people are
taking code from Emacs head and using it in XEmacs.
Looking at https://bitbucket.org/xemacs/eudc/src, this is untrue for at

I looked at this. There are definitely some simplifications that I'd
like to implement eventually, like deprecating then eliminating the
eudc-options file, and allowing a single search to span multiple
directory servers. However, an easy first step is deprecating then
removing XEmacs support. Can I push this NEWS entry to the emacs-26
