Tramp will also remove the XEmacs compat code (and the compat code for
Emacs 22, to be precise). But the development will still be outside
Emacs, in order to support older Emacsen but master, and in order to
release more frequently than Emacs. One idea is to add Tramp also to
ELPA, as subtree. People could get than a newer version of Tramp than
the built-in.

This decision is not T-shirt driven, I fear the market for Tramp
T-shirts is much too small.
