I'm not sure I will continue the MSDOS support in Emacs 23.  It sounds
like Emacs 23 will be Unicode-based; if that is indeed so, it will be
most probably well beyond my resources to make all the Unicode-related
features work on MSDOS.

One reason why _I_ wasn't part of the discussion is that I couldn't
find any place where the design principles of multi-tty are described
in sufficient detail for me to make up my mind about it.  Is there
such a document out there?  If not, could someone ``in the know'',
preferably Karoly himself, please describe the feature and its main
design principles?
