You should ask on the emacs-devel mailing list then.

arch is a new version control system, aka tla.  I don't understand the
relationship between CVS and arch, though.

bidi is the branch that supports bidirectional text, i.e. right-to-left
languages as well as left-to-right.

lexical is the branch that implements Emacs Lisp with lexical
(vs. dynamic) binding.

multi-tty is the branch that supports, uh, multiple ttys (for a single
emacs instance).

tiling is the branch that implements some fancy image features, like
background images.

unicode is obviously the branch that (fully) support Unicode -- it might
even use it as the internal encoding.
