What release cycles are we're speaking about, in terms of time? Example:
I have committed the first bits to the master branch of what would be
Tramp 2.3. Incompatible (the code, NOT the external interface) to Tramp
2.2.13 in Emacs 25.1. If it takes a long time until Emacs 26 is
released, that code should go to Emacs 25.2, somehow. 

Best regards, Michael.
