OK, but then, as soon as 21.3 hits the streets, we *should* create a new
release branch, feature-freeze it and start pretesting it. If we want a
shinny new-features release sometime before 2004, I mean. And it's my
*strong* believe we should want it. Like it or not, users and developers
are more attracted if it seems there's movement. I'd bet people out
there things Emacs development is glacial.

I cannot talk on behalf of Steffan, but at least I, who started the
thread, *don't* suggest such a thing. I suggest schedules.
