Wow.  An admirable goal.  I do not understand the C sources of Emacs.
Amazingly, this has not stopped me from doing modifications here and
there.  (Or was it only here?  Yes, I think it was only one -- minor!
-- modification.)

And I agree with David that it might be useful to do an on-demand
kind of learning, rather than trying to just grok everything.

Is there anything that you had in mind modifying in the long term?
Maybe you could turn your plan around: start with the modification
that you wanted to postpone until you understood.
