Hi Alan.

I remember you suggesting some time an idea that you called
'emacsicality' -- basically a grain of customizability larger than
individual key/function  binding or even major mode.
[Subsequently I tried to look it up but my google-fu failed me]

Do you remember what this suggestion was?

In any case do you realize that this statement of yours suggests that
*fact* of emacs encrustation is opposed to the *philosophy* of
infinite customizability?
