Er, well guessing what you meant[*], it seems a reasonable enough
thing to do -- I'm referring to _fundamental_ changes in
representations, etc.  I think _those_ are unlikely to change, but
nevertheless the unicode branch still is different enough from the
trunk that merging it would probably cause a fair number of bugs.

I think that such bugs would be minor enough that using the branch for
development of something like Aqua Emacs is quite reasonable (such
minor bugs probably wouldn't significantly affect the work on the Aqua
backend, and subsequent bug-fixes would likely be straight-forward to
merge), but they would unnecessarily delay a trunk release.

[*] as you seemed to have used the phrase "beg the question"
incorrectly -- it means "makes the question pointless"

Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.
