Look, I am *NOT* "advocating" Vi over Emacs. I would *love* to use
Emacs... if I could. But I've tried several times, failing each time.
I've never even made it all the way through the introductory on-line
tutorial. My fingers and/or head just don't "get it". Call it a defect
in my character, or some obscure form of brain damage, whatever.

All I was trying to do is point out that for others in the same or
similar situations, you *can* still do Lisp programming fairly
conveniently (e.g., paren-matching, whole s-expr cut&paste, etc.)
with some editors. (Losing, of course, the other benefits of Emacs such
as ILISP, Gnus, infinite configurability in "a Lisp", etc., but still...)
