However, that hasn't been trivial in the past (what with the Emacs
feature freeze that lasted two years and all).  When a new, general
facility has been developed because Gnus needed it, it would be
counter-productive to not distribute it with Gnus just because it's not

But when merging, the general stuff should not end up in the Gnus
directory, though.
