(Or feature check, if possible.) But please don't break compatibility
with Emacs 21 and Emacs 20.7 .

I agree. AFAICS, Dave Love already installed some changes to make
Gnus work with emacs-unicode-2 (often referred as "Emacs 22"  in
code comments). But there are probably also some open issues:
E.g. "Wrong for Emacs 23" in `message-fix-before-sending'.
 We are currently discussing if we should drop Emacs 20.7
compatibility also for the stable branch (Gnus 5.10, v5-10) as we
have already done for the development version of Gnus (No Gnus).
 We should probably check out the before-renaming-to-emacs-22
version, look for strings like "Emacs 22" and replace the comments
with "Emacs 23 (unicode)"
