I was under the impression that the unicode-2 branch was fairly old (I looked
at a few files, and it seems to have last been updated from the trunk around
last summer), which might make such testing a bit questionable.

I think a merge one direction or another should take place.

BTW, I wonder if it might be a slightly easier to use arch to manage the
unicode branch, at least the merging duties.  I keep my branches up-to-date
by merging regularly from the trunk, and it's quite painless in general (some
of this is that I now have a fair amount of experience with arch, of course
-- but I was pretty good with CVS too, and it was always a pain).

Since unicode-2 was branched before I added taglines, it would take a bit of
preparation, but once done it would be simple for me to keep the unicode
branch synchronized between CVS and arch as I do with the trunk, and the
unicode hackers could continue to use CVS for daily hacking if they wished,
with arch used to keep the unicode branch updated with respect to the CVS
trunk (this latter is probably best done by a unicode hacker, as they would
know how to best resolve merge conflicts).
