        Is it "important?"  No.  Is it nice?  Absolutely.  So is
automatic code indenting and face (changes to the color or style of a
display of characters depending upon their role' in the program).  With
additional tools, emacs, like most good code editors, can help you
organize your build process and so on.  Emacs makes it easier to debug
the blank file (which is all programming really is), but it's no more or
less "important" for that reason.
