That project must be in its absolute infancy because
there isn't even a Wikipedia page on it. I have no idea
what it is all about, but I am prepared to swallow
poison that Emacs, without the text editor, for
non-textual applications, will *never* replace my Emacs.

But I confess, I *was* "thinking in Emacs" back when I
still used X. Whenever I wanted something to happen, I
always thought I'd add a hook, or make two events into
one by stacking them in a defun, just for a split
second...
