Someone mentioned in a previous post about a function you use to create a 
new org-generic-alist called set-alist which is not known in gnu emacs.

(defun org-set-generic-type (type definition)
  "Adds a TYPE and DEFINITION to the existing list of defined generic
export definitions."
  (set-alist 'org-generic-alist type definition))

 I went searching for the function. I found the library which seems to be 
part of the xemacs bundle. What could we use for people who use gnu 
emacs? Is there a function in emacs that would be a good substitute?
