I have app-editors/emacs-23.2-r2 installed. It was possible to install app-emacs/emacs-w3m-1.4.4-r3 with that Emacs version, as emacs-w3m does not have dependencies against a specific Emacs version. However, when I try to start it inside Emacs (M-x w3m), it reports:
Emacs-w3m of this version does not support Emacs 23; try the development version
Indeed version 1.4.390_pre20100312 works.
There's not much that we can do about this. Obviously, upstream is well aware of the problem, but hasn't released a new version since a long time.
Stabilising a CVS snapshot is out of the question.

No, I was rather thinking of making emacs-w3m-1.4.4 depend on <app-editors/emacs-23, or something like that. (Well, personally I'm not seriously asking for anything, as I have found a way that works for me.)
I've added an explicit dependency on <emacs-23 and dropped the package to unstable.
This is not a real solution, therefore resolving as upstream.
