Hi Xah,

I just read your "modernizing Emacs" page [1] and I wonder, have you
looked at the "Emacs Starter Kit" [2] (or /shameless-plug/ my literate
version of the same [3]).  I think that by being distributed as a
configuration for GNU emacs such `starter-kits' could serve as a good
place to test and/or prove the utility of eventual changes to GNU emacs.

Have you considered wrapping your modernization suggestions up into such
a starter kit?  It seems that if such a kit gained popularity it would
raise the chances of general Emacs adoption.

Also, more pursuant to the points in your previous email, I wonder if
you can recommend a good set of key-bindings for common commands such as
cursor movement, file save-open-close, buffer-movement etc...

Cheers -- Eric

as a side note, I've been using Emacs for ~5 years, and over the last
year have developed hand pains which were greatly relieved by using a
Kinesis keyboard.
