I'm fairly sure it will work in Emacs 21.x but I don't know about the other
versions.  However, clearly the change could be commmitted to the Emacs
repository.  I don't how you store your changes, but a distributed RCS like
Arch, would seem ideal for your purposes. Then the changes that you commit to
Emacs 22.1 could be stored as a branch in your local repository.  I don't know
all the details (I've nwver used Arch) but Miles Bader keeps an Arch mirror
for Emacs and I'm sure he would put you in the picture.

You do most of the development.  It only needs to be simpler if you want to
look to others like emacs-devel, to help you.  One way to do that, I guess, is
to strip down the branch for Emacs 22.1 in your hypothetical Arch repository,
to just work in Emacs 22.1.
