If we continue to develop Emacs 23 in a spirit similar to the Emacs 22
release cycle, a 2010 release is extremely optimistic.

I, personally, would prefer a shorter release cycle for Emacs 23.  One
approach would be to limit the Emacs 23 changes to unicode, multi-tty,
and xft, with a *very* limited set of other changes.  In this
scenario, a two year cycle is feasible.

No matter which route we take, it would be nice to have some sense of
direction for Emacs 23.  Jay Belanger recently posted a message asking
about the policy for trunk development; I, too, would like to know the
answer to this.
