Are you sure about that? What about if the learning time is so long that it outweight the benefits of the feature the user want?

So instead of always trying to lessen the difficulty of learning Emacs, I think we should concentrate on features that users want (like CEDET, Tabs, etc.)

Those who say "Hey! The learning curve is too high." are those
who don't really want/need Emacs.
