Another thought: with multi-tty and vc we have had two destabilizing
dumps of code without the single upstream author acting responsible
for integration and maintenance in Emacs.  multi-tty was sort of a
strategical decision.  I can't remember any discussion or rationale
for the half-finished vc.el, however.

If this trend continues, there will never be a stable merge basis for
unicode-2, let alone a stable Emacs 23 release.
