  My primary concern is the educational value of a Common Lisp application
  that could replace the bogus Emacs Lisp as a demonstration of what a good
  Lisp can do.  There is also the speed and convenience of many sorts, but
  that is way below the effect of enhancing the Common Lisp systems because
  they suddenly have to face up to a much larger user community who will
  have all the needs that are not with the current systems, and hopefully
  will be enthusiastic about a "better Emacs" and want to do stuff in it,
  which will then be a real Common Lisp environment that can compile their
  files and such things, not just an application that is fairly closed.

  Why did that stupid George W. Bush turn to Christian fundamentalism to
  fight Islamic fundamentalism?  Why use terms like "crusade", which only
  invokes fear of a repetition of that disgraceful period of Christianity
  with its _sustained_ terrorist attacks on Islam?  He is _such_ an idiot.
