Thanks a lot for doing this -- there's a bunch of interesting results

Things I'm surprised by:

* How many people prefer daemon + emacsclient

* That the GUI is only used by 3-4x as many people as the terminal

* I'm not surprised that virtually everybody disables the toolbar, but
I'm a bit surprised that so many people disable the scroll bar (I do,

* That the default keybindings are just 2x as popular as the vim-a-like
key bindings.  This one is really surprising to me, because we seldom

* That ~two thirds of people who responded uses magit.  I knew it was
popular, but that's astounding.

Now, no surveys are representative, but it's interesting.
