The idea of "GPT for Emacs" is, alas, not an option.  GPT-3 is nonfree
software.  I think it is not even released.  Thus, we cannot include
it in a free system; we cannot distribute it with Emacs.

It would be possible to utilize GPT-3 running on Microsoft's server by
sending it questions -- but that is SaaSS, which is an injustice
similar to nonfree software.  For explanation of this issue, see

For ethical reasons we don't recommend SaaSS in GNU software, and a
fortiori we don't distribute or recommend code to invoke SaaSS.
