I certainly hope someone will write a high-level description for the
new webpage of what's new in Emacs 22, targeted at users.  Currently,
the Development & "Coming Soon" section on the page links to TODO and
etc/NEWS, or rather, the Savannah CVS view for these.  Not only is the
CVS view confusing unless you're familiar, the NEWS file itself has
all sorts of things that are likely not of interest to users, e.g.:

** When pure storage overflows while dumping, Emacs now prints how
much pure storage it will approximately need.

Ideally we could summarize the most important user-visible changes in
10 bullet points or so, to put right on the page.  Maybe this has
already been done.
