I share the same fear that a package residing in the elpa branch could
be regarded as second class citizen. OTOH, being an elpa package would
require from us (external) package maintainers shorter freeze windows,
before a new Emacs release is shipped. New Tramp features are stalled
from being synced since June. A similar freeze period was before
releasing Emacs 23.

And in the Emacs 22 case, the freeze was for about 3 years, if I'm not
totally wrong. But maybe I'm just a too pedantic German, following every
freeze policy ...

Best regards, Michael.
