That is not the issue here, the issue is in the lines excessively
trimmed: do the stated rules for "only minor fixes" apply everywhere or
there are some exceptions.  And if there are exceptions, what are those

Thank you yet again for your graciousness!  Again given statements like:

"As for Mac, I'm planning to quit the development of the Carbon port
for Emacs 23, as the Cocoa/GNUstep port will replace it on that
version.  So, personally I don't care if multitty is incompatible with
the current Carbon code as long as it is not for Emacs 22.x (x > 1)."

and the excellent job at whining, moaning and dissing the multi-tty
effort, coupled with no code/documentation or any other type of positive
contribution should be appreciated as a great upper hand that can be
used to disparage volunteer work by other people.  Marvelous!
