I think the problem is that upstream fell out of sync.
We should really try to avoid any local change that the upstream
maintainer rejects, otherwise it becomes unmaintainable (I've seen it in
miniature with cperl-mode.el, and I'd rather not think about what it can
turn into with something like Gnus).

I think the best way forward is to check in an unmodified Oort Gnus along
with a "best effort" list of things that might need merging (a big patch
file, maybe).  Then ask Dave Love what changes he made on the original Gnus
version before checking it in (in high-level terms) so we can assess what
needs to be redone.  Then we can all try to help select what really needs
to be merged and do the merge (I can easily merge in the patches that
I installed, for example).
