Surely emacs-unicode-2 should be the _next_ thing to be merged to the trunk, if
only because it's existed as a branch for three years now (multi-tty is a
relative newcomer on that basis).  It seems unreasonable, to me, to expect
Kenichi to merge changes indefinitely.

I don't think there are enough resources to keep maintaining all these
different branches for very long.  In any case, it must be quite likely that
there will just be bugfix-like releases from EMACS_22_BASE (just as there were
from EMACS_21_1_RC).

And let's make that merge now, before we slip (further) into oblivion.
