(Or feature check, if possible.)  But please don't break compatibility
with Emacs 21 and Emacs 20.7 [1].

I agree.  AFAICS, Dave Love already installed some changes to make
Gnus work with emacs-unicode-2 (often referred as "Emacs 22" [2] in
code comments).  But there are probably also some open issues:
E.g. "Wrong for Emacs 23" in `message-fix-before-sending'.

Bye, Reiner.

[1] We are currently discussing if we should drop Emacs 20.7
    compatibility also for the stable branch (Gnus 5.10, v5-10) as we
    have already done for the development version of Gnus (No Gnus).

[2] We should probably check out the before-renaming-to-emacs-22
    version, look for strings like "Emacs 22" and replace the comments
    with "Emacs 23 (unicode)"
