Then it would appear that I picked a bad guide.  Whatever.  However,
the fact remains that we already branched for release, and that
several developers don't feel they can contribute anything useful
anymore to make the release of 22.1 happen.

So it would seem that their energies would better be invested by
starting with the work that was intended to be done after the branch
split, namely merging the multitty branch into the trunk first, and
unicode-2 afterwards.

That was the point of branching, after all.  Would you agree that this
seems like the sensible thing to do now for them?  If not, what else?
It would at least seem to be conducive to make Emacs 23.1 happen
earlier, and we certainly could gather some points among Emacs fans if
we did our best to let 23.1 happen faster than 22.1.
