Never cherry-pick from emacs-common. Why would you cherry pick from
emacs-common into emacs-23 or trunk, instead of just merging?

You don't know with 100% reliability. If a change committed into
emacs-common does not belong there, do the same you do with the rest of
wrong commits: revert it.

I'm not saying that the proposed schema is perfect, it simply is better
than what we do now.
