OK, maybe not quite on a par -- how about the level of Jack (assuming
that ELisp and Emacs C collectively make up QKA)?  After all, TeX is
is the GNU text formatter (this is according to the Manifesto, though
the prase "the GNU text formatter" is not perhaps 100% kosher) and
Emacs is the GNU text editor (again, I'm not necessarily being
perfectly precise). 

Seems like they should go together hand in hand... or more like, hand
in glove -- since they already do go together hand in hand. Maybe I'm
thinking about how to acheive my goals here in the wrong way -- it
wouldn't be the first time. Nevertheless, I am finding in my work
that the boundaries between TeX and Lisp have blurred -- and I'm
liking it, I would like it if they blurred more.
