That was my understanding too.

I don't really see why we cannot wait with rmail/mbox until 22.1.
rmail has done fine with BABYL for MANY years -- can't it do one more?

Considering that the new code is said to be mostly UNTESTED (contrary
to Gnus 5.10 which was very well tested), merging it now will
_definitely_ delay the release of 21.4.

If we hope for a 21.4 release in 2004 (rather than 2104), we should
probably NOT do that.

Compare these two schedules (if testing rmail adds 2 months delay):

Release:                When
21.4 without rmail      End 2004
22.1 with rmail         Mid 2005

Release:                When
21.4 with rmail         Mar 2005
22.1                    Nov 2005  (include holiday season)

So 22.1 would be 21.4 with unicode, multi-tty, plus rmail/mbox.
And I don't see why we shouldn't be able to release that in 2005
(which considering the time span between 21.1 and 21.4 isn't distant).

BTW, what happened with the face-remapping for 21.4 ?
