| Naggum, you are guessing wrong, because you neglected to look up the
| documentation of the things you are talking about.

  I love you, too.

  Well, gee, _I_ think you may not have paid attention to the Great
  Emacs Experiment, but you wouldn't do something that would even make
  it _possible_ to claim you haven't looked up the documentation of
  the things you're talking about, would you?  Nah, of course not.

| I agree with you.

  I don't generally consider that comforting.  This is no exception.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
