   The current maintainers have absolutely no incentive to try to
   make emacs appealing to the masses.

Maybe, maybe not.

   If they did that, sure, they'd probably get plenty of new
   maintainers, but these new guys would change their tool in ways
   they don't want.  They're OK with the way it is right now.
   What's in it for them to change it?

Well, a superior change accomodates both old and new.  Not every
programmer realizes such change, but there's no point losing hope.
Whether or not that programmer is a maintainer is beside the point.
