  FWIW, it's a lot less modern than that.  Several ridiculously simple
  improvements to Emacs Lisp have been turned down because they were
  deemed to be moving it in the direction of Common Lisp, when some
  folks behind Emacs have gone off and created this cretinous Scheme
  bastard called GUILE and want to base Emacs on it.  Phooey!

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