No, but it's better than merging half-baked code and waiting for bug
reports which probably won't get fixed.

That doesn't work because there are not enough CEDET developers. Our
resources are stretched thin with maintaining the stuff that is already
in Emacs, so I'm not inclined to merge more, largely untested code which
I myself don't use.

However, if someone volunteers to act as maintainer for one those
packages, I'd merge them, although whoever wants to maintain the Android
project should make sure the head of the FSF is OK with it being in
Emacs, and I can't imagine anyone eager to start that discussion...
