Yes, right.

I know too, and I have heard some stories of rejected patches for Emacs.
For examples, Canna support, XIM support, or so. Probably, they will not
be merged to Emacs. But I think that we can fork package on Debian.
(cf. FreeBSD Project has some patched emacs)

Well, I will maintain package of patched Emacs20 as mule4 (forking)
In the future, if they became needless, we can remove mule4 package from
