We have been through this already.  The major features are unicode-2
and multi-tty support.  There are some updates from external packages
like tramp that have been held back from the code base, but nothing
really Earth-shattering.

It sounds like a month of merging should get us through the worst, and
then not too much cleaning up should be necessary: the branches we are
talking about are in active use.

That is the exact decision why we have already agreed _not_ to merge
the bidi branch at that time.  Even though it obviously forms a
logical complement to unicode-2, its state of maturity is not

Can we just concentrate on Emacs 22 before going bonkers over Emacs 23
