I mostly agree with Eli, but we should try to fix problems with
the new features added since 21.4 -- once 22.1 is out, it may
be too late to get things right.

But at this stage, if people had respected the feature freeze, the
new features in 22.1 would have stabilized by now ... it's the
constant addition of "tiny" things that keep messing things up
and postponing the release (e.g. the comment font lock thing).
