Wow. I would have said .emacs code is broken if it cannot be
re-evaluated without causing bad side effects, so I must be missing
something. Can you give some examples and explain why they can't be
avoided? About the only thing I'm aware of doing is adding duplicate
entries to some lists, and even that I could avoid if I thought the
effect would amount to something bad.
