To restate that in a less glib manner, to the best of my knowledge, my tiling
changes have never been reviewed by anybody, and such discussion as has
occurred has mostly been off on various tangents, not about the core

For instance Dave Love commented that would nice if a background image could
be synchronized with the text (so it acted like "paper"), as that's what web
browsers do, and the ensuing discussion was mostly about why it was hard to
do that in emacs -- but I don't think that detracts from the basic
functionality, it's just an interesting possible feature.

Are you sure you're not thinking of some other patch?
