That might be true, although a completely unmaintained variant probably won't.

I think the idea is to make it really easy to share some of the new features (Nintendo DS support, menu scrolling code, new ncurses features, better colors, etc) between maintained variants (including Vanilla).

I imagine this would help someone update variants with a minimum of work, so that someone who doesn't really want to spend much time on X variant can still keep it current.

P.S. Nick, I responded on your blog also!
