Surely emacs is moving in this direction -- but is also being careful to
keep in mind the large existing emacs user community.

There is ample room for people to discuss this evolution, but approaches
that start with "first, toss out the existing user interface" aren't gonna fly.
Emacs isn't going to turn into a fancy notepad clone, regardless of what
"modern" users may (think they) want...
