"cooperate with" and "meld with" tend to raise substantially different
issues.  Emacs is perfectly well equipped to cooperate with a lot of
other projects not least of all because of its unusually diverse support
of encodings.  But of course it is a perfect nightmare to reimplement
Emacs on the basis of a system with a less polymorphic history.
