No, it cant be true. ITS editor macros was written entirely in TECO and 
not Lisp. It was ported to Tenex and TOPS-20 operating systems by Stallman 
and McMahon. Therefore  both the ITS and the TOPS-20 emacsens were TECO , 
and not maclisp (multics) or moclisp (unix), emacsens. What the posters found
on the pdp-10 emulator was not Richards ITS emacs. ITS was an experimental
OS of the MIT written by hackers.
