    m-X Edit System barfs on non-text files (e.g. .bfd files, data files),
    so it doesn't work on system which contain these.

    Fortunately, the command processor's :Edit System command knows not to
    try to load these files into the editor.

    It'd be nice if the Zmacs command was as smart.

This turned out still to be true in the development system.  So we fixed
it just now.  Thanks for the report.
