Well, from what Lőrentey wrote, it would seem like these architecture
problems are pretty much constrained to "simple changes" and most
likely constrained to few files.

Since the multi-tty branch currently has no really active maintainer
but is considered robust, it would probably be the safest strategy to
merge it first to HEAD, iron out the platform specific problems, only
_then_ merge the unicode branch.  In that way, the multi-tty branch
merge requires less work and its success can be estimated better on
the various platforms.  While this shifts a good part of the merge
load to the unicode branch merge, we have more expertise available

Since the overlap between the branches should also be not too high, I
think that should be doable.
