I think the best thing might be to have neither, but rather do two-way
merging very frequently.

Since most changes do actually occur in the Gnus tree, this would end up
being "mostly" one-way.  To make it practical, there would probably have
to be some awareness on the part of emacs hackers of the situation
(e.g., some care to not remove xemacs-specific code whereas my
impression is that before this was done freely in the emacs branch of
gnus); perhaps the relative rarity of emacs->gnus changes would
make it not _that_ much an issue.

Is it true that nothing can be known?  If so how do we know this?  -Woody Allen
