In such a way that that fairly self contained topics like VC stay together.
You declined to say how much smaller the Emacs Manual needs to be, but I would
keep as much in it as possible.

Without this information, I would guess that the Avanced Features section could
be Volume Two and everything before, and everything after (Recovery from
Problems), could be Volume One.

Emacs User Manaual Vol 1: Basics
Emacs User Manaual Vol 2: Advanced Features
