If there are no more comments or suggestions...how do I get this installed?
Well, do you have assignment to FSF on record?  I cannot see it.  If
you don't, please talk to Stefan and Yidong to start the paperwork.

Once that is done, someone will install this for you.
I don't. The Emacs website is specific about low-level dev stuff (bzr etc.) but I couldnt find anything on what I would consider infrastructural things, like the paperwork or other requirements for contributors. Maybe I just didnt look in the right place.

So, Stefan and Chong, what exactly is necessary to make this happen? Thanks!

Personally, I think it would be nice to install this in the EMACS_23
branch to be used on any forthcoming pretests and the final release, but
I understand if it is a little late in the game for this.
I don't think this is needed on the Emacs-23 branch, since it will not
be used by Emacs end users, only by people who produce the binary
distributions.  And those can use this even if it's not part of the
official pretest tarball.
To use it right, you would have to have it installed before the tarball is created, because of admin.el setting the version number. OTOH, that can be changed manually, the other files 3 can be copied into the tarball's nt directory and it works. So, I guess you are right, it is not needed in the release branch.
Thanks again for working on this.
My pleasure.
