OTOH, there was also the XEmacs fork, which started almost in the same
time frame, and which ended very differently.  If someone is going to
read on the egcs affair, I suggest reading on XEmacs as well.

My take from this is twofold:

  . forks are a terrible waste of our scarce resources
  . people should try harder to work with those with whom they
    disagree, and should emphasize the common instead of the
    disagreements
