So far, the only point of divergence that we've identified
is over 8+3 file name support.  The gnulib folks have made it
reasonably clear that they don't want to be restricted
to an 8+3 filename namespace for their source file names.

Right now this is not a problem with gnulib and Emacs,
since the file names imported from gnulib happen not to clash.
It is a problem with some other files in the Emacs trunk, though.
I've proposed to address this by modifying the MS-DOS build
procedure rather than by renaming the files; see
The goal is to allow non-MS-DOS developers to stop worrying about the
8+3 problem, for names of files imported from gnulib
and for other similar file names.
