Why do we need to see that?  Problems in 22.1 will be of two kinds:

a) Problems that have a better fix or solution in Emacs 23
b) Problems that have the same fix or solution in Emacs 23

In case a, we need to synchronize 2 solutions into three branches
(EMACS_22_BASE, trunk and unicode-2), in case b we need to synchronize
one solution into three branches.

That is one branch too many.  We are working towards two release
series at most (22.x and 23.1).  Branches in CVS are enough of a pain
that we don't want to keep three branches for two goals.

It does not matter.  We have the EMACS_22_BASE branch to cater for
them.  It is not like we are betting everything on the trunk.
